DIY God’s eye

DIY God's eye
Glamping times to us is not only fun and fames but also a time of meditation (see our other projects here). So, Ashley came up with our own version of a God’s eye, or Ojo de Dios to evoke a beautiful tradition and craft.
Traditionally, a God’s eye is a ritual tool to celebrate an event or blessing, like the blessing on a home. They were believed to be used by the ancient Pueblo Peoples and were continued to be used during the Spanish Colonial times, from the 1500s-1800s. The four points represent the elements–earth, wind, fire, air–and the center is the all-seeing eye of God. The God’s eye was traditionally created in solitude as a form of prayer. In some forms of the tradition, when a child is born, the central eye is woven by the father, then one eye is added for every year of the child’s life until the age of five.
I find the tradition beautiful and meaningful and we respectfully created one to honor this tradition.
