What are ‘God’s Eyes?’

Annie Kinchington, WEA tutor, has been working with students at the Nia centre this term to make ‘God’s Eyes.’

Annie explains, ‘The Huichol Indians of Mexico and the Aymara Indians of Bolivia weave brightly coloured yarn on a simple frame of crossed sticks to make a design called “Ojo de Dios” or “Eye of God”. Originally, “God’s Eyes” were made to be placed on an altar so that the gods could watch over and protect people.’
