In Istanbul, Nazar Boncugu are ubiquitous. As in many cultures, Turks believe the envy of others can cause harm, whether intentionally or involuntarily. In Turkey (as well as other countries) this "evil eye" - better but less colorfully described as the covetous eye - can bring you bad luck. Turks use Nazar Boncugu (literally "evil eye bead") to guard against evil associated with envious or covetous eyes. Nazars can be seen dangling from the bumpers of taxi cabs, pinned to the clothes of babies, built into the foundation of modern office buildings, guarding the doorways of kebap houses, and built into the code of websites. The charms are believed to reflect evil and protect the wearer from physical harm that can befall the object of "negative thinking."

This ancient belief in Nazar Boncugu stretches back before recorded history. It is mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible (Proverbs 28:22: "A man with an evil eye hastens after wealth And does not know that want will come upon him.") and may be descended from beliefs of the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. Belief in the evil eye is also well-known in many countries in the Mediterranean area and in the Indian Sub-continent.

Have you just had a new child? Bought a new car? Built a new office building? Worried that your "friends" and others are filled with envy about your good fortune? The protection of the Nazar is used for anything new or likely to attract praise. The belief is that even well-intentioned compliments include a conscious or unconscious dose of envy and resentment. The bead reflects the evil intent back to the onlooker. It somewhat resembles an eye and it is said the typical blue color is a factor in protecting the user.

For more information on the Nazar Boncugu, you can buy a VCD from Turkish film maker Ali Akyuz. The documentary's site has some good information as well.
