They can represent clairvoyance, omniscience, and/or a gateway

into the soul. Other qualities that eyes are commonly associated

with are: intelligence, light, vigilance, moral conscience, and

truth. Looking someone in the eye is a western custom of honesty.

In this way covering of the eyes, by wearing a helmet, sunglasses,

etc. can mean mystery, not seeing the complete truth, or

deceit.
