The Story of the Convex Mirror

The convex mirror has been known by many names since the Middle Ages:

Banker's mirror - Bankers hung the convex mirrors in their establishments to spy on potentially unwanted visitors;

Butler's mirror - Butlers used the mirror to check on the progress of their master's supper;

Witch's Eye - In the Middle Ages, people accredited the convex mirror with magical powers. People thought that this mirror was all-observing and repelled evil forces, like a huge eye. For this reason, households used to place at least one mirror next to their door or windows to prevent the entry of evil.
