The All Seeing Eye.

The all-seeing Eye – a single human eye found in many eras and cultures. It is generally found in many eras and cultures. It is generally a symbol of the watchful and protective power of the watchful and protective power of the Supreme Being, watchful and protective power of the Supreme Being, especially when that entity is considered in a solar or heavenly context. It appears on the great seal of the United States, and is among the many beautiful symbols of Freemasonry, where it represents the Great architect of the universe.

In regions where the evil eye belief occurs, the all-seeing eye charm is used as apostrophized talismans against danger. In its specifically protective role, “the all-seeing-eye”, appears on at least one North American Good luck coin to ‘guard’ the bearer ‘from evil’. A similar talismanic function was assigned to the protective widget eye or ‘Eye of Horus’ of ancient Egypt and the third eye of Buddha in India. Even the Mexican ojo devenado charm, an ancient Shamanic amulet made from a psychedelic legume seed is given an eye related name: ojo de venado means “deer eye”.
