Today's Outfit & Story of Evil Eye



The colors of today's outfit are moss green (top), taupe brown (smoky quartz) and grayish pale purple mauve (nail). This green tone seems to match quite well with the tone of smoky quartz.


And the newly posted item, evil eye ring. Ever since I was gifted Turkish blue glass evil eye wall hanging, I had been curious about this symbol and made me want to make my version of it. So, here's the basic information of this mysterious motif.


Evil Eye amulet is said to protect the wearer from the "eyes" of the undue or excessive praise or jealousy that would eventually lead one to physical or mental illness. The belief of evil eye goes back to Ancient Rome and Greece, then the idea was widespread over Middle East, Europe, and India with slightly different takes yet basically the same concept. I would be wearing this and look at it to remind myself to stay humble whatever achievement I would make in life.







イビルアイは、心身の病の原因とされる、賛美(身分不相応だったり過剰なまでの、あるいは嫉妬) の「目」から守るお守り、ということで、この信仰は古代ギリシャ・ローマに始まり、少しずつ形を変えながらも基本的には同じ意味合いのまま、中東、ヨーロッパ、インドへと広がっていったとのこと。なにかやり遂げた時に、この目を眺めては謙虚な心を思い出す、なんていう使用法でもよいかもですね。
