Morgoth was the principal agent of evil in Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, and his influence lingered in the world even after he was cast from the world into the outer void. Sauron, his top lieutenant, is depicted in the most recent Lord of the Ring movies as a giant all-seeing eye, much like the evil eye that many Arab households guard against by hanging mirrors and blue talisman (nazar) on their front doors or jewellery.
