No matter what you call it, the "evil eye" is unwanted in cultures around the world. In Latin American culture, "mal de ojo" is caused when one looks at another with envy and it is believed to inflict injury or bad luck. Mothers are especially wary of evil eye and protect their infants by having them wear bracelets, like this red-beaded one from El Salvador. Those who come to admire the baby are also encouraged to touch the child to ward off "mal de ojo." Children afflicted with evil eye must be seen by a curandero (healer), who will often perform a ritual which includes passing an egg over the child's body and breaking it into a glass of water.
