What’s behind the eye? Anthropos, Greek for humankind, is represented by the first letter of the Latin alphabet, a Phoenician variant. The modern term, anthropology, is derived from a combination of anthropos, and logos, to study.
The evil eye, a curse bequeathed to one through the glare of another, is believed by many to hold misfortune. Talismans depicting the eye, are said to ward off these evil spirits, a customary belief held by many.
Symbolic of this meaning, the Anthropos emblem combines this idea of a protective talisman with the ancient word of man, to illustrate its message; watching over humankind for the purpose of study.
