    The association of an eye with the concept of Divine Providence is found in Christianity. In Renaissance European iconography, the Eye, surrounded by a triangle, was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity.[failed verification] Seventeenth-century depictions of the Eye sometimes show it surrounded by clouds or sunbursts.[14] The Eye of God in a triangle is still used in church architecture and Christian art to symbolize the Trinity and God’s omnipresence and divine providence.

    The Eye of Providence is notably featured on the following Christian buildings, among others:

    The Kazan Cathedral, Saint Petersburg, Russia
    The Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah
    Jesuit Church, Mannheim, GermanyThe Eye of Providence is a symbol found in Hinduism, particularly throughout the path of San?tan? dharma, and is the component part of drawing many yantras, which are invoked for various purposes. For example, in the ancient yoga, the symbol is drawn with specific Vedic mantras in order to purify the seat of the yogi.[15]

    In Buddhism, the Eye belongs to Abhijñ?, one of the higher powers,[citation needed] and can be achieved during samadhi, or intensive meditative concentration.[citation needed] What is known in Pali as Dibba-cakkhu, meaning Divine Eye or Divine Vision, allows one to see into the working law of karma.[citation needed] One can ‘see’ knowing others’ karmic destinations; death and subsequent rebirth.[citation needed]

    In ??o Cao ?ài (Caodaism), the Eye of Providence, known as “The Divine Eye,” convinces believers that God witnesses everything, everywhere, continuously.

    Miscellaneous uses
    Commonly in the context of a reference to the Illuminati, numerous video games, TV shows, films, books, and websites contain depictions of the Eye.

    University and college insignia
    Several universities and college fraternities use the Eye of Providence in their coats of arms, seals, or badges, notably:

    Delta Tau Delta, based in Bethany, West Virginia
    Phi Kappa Psi, based in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania
    Phi Delta Theta, based in Oxford, Ohio.
    Delta Kappa Epsilon, based in New Haven, Connecticut
    The University of Chile, Santiago, Chile
    The University of Mississippi, Oxford, Mississippi

    In 1782, the Eye of Providence was adopted as part of the symbolism featured on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States. It was first proposed as an element of the Great Seal by the first of three design committees in 1776, and is thought to be the suggestion of the artistic consultant, Pierre Eugene du Simitiere.[4]

    In his original proposal to the committee, Du Simitiere placed the Eye over shields so as to symbolize each of the original thirteen states of the Union. On the version of the seal that would eventually be approved, the Eye is positioned above an unfinished pyramid of thirteen steps (again symbolizing the original States, but also incorporating the nation’s potential for future growth). Such symbolism is explained through the motto that appears above the Eye, annuit cœptis, meaning “He approves [our] undertakings” (or “has approved”).[5][6]

    Perhaps due to its use in the design of the Great Seal, the Eye has made its way into other American seals and logos, such as, for example:

    The Seal of Colorado
    The city seal of Kenosha, Wisconsin
    DARPA’s Information Awareness Office

    My best guess is a dog whistle to other cult members.

    Having said that, it’s not necessarily the subject who is in the know. A pro photographer directs his subject, and will take hundreds of shots in a single shoot. He only needs one quick snap with the eye obscured to send this message later, with or without the subject’s permission or knowledge of what it might mean.
