Whose eye is in the symbol of the eye of providence.
The Eye of Providence otherwise known as the All seeing eye is a symbol depicting a single eye surrounded by rays, of light or a glory, and usually enclosed by a triangle.

It is commonly interpreted as representing the all-seeing eye of God keeping watch on mankind.

In its current form, the symbol first appeared in the west during the 17th century, but representations of an all-seeing eye can be traced back to Egyptian mythology and the Eye of Horus. Hence the many claims.

17th-century depictions of the Eye of Providence sometimes show it surrounded by clouds.

The later addition of an enclosing triangle is a more explicit trinitarian reference to the God of Christianity.
