More information:

These eyes are believed to be a modern survival of an old Phoenician or Egyptian tradition, and are normally referred to as the Eye of Horus – the Phoenicians’ god of protection from evil. They are a symbol of protection and good health, and are believed to protect the fishermen from any harm while they are out at sea.
