God's Eye

We created our own God's Eyes which represent the four elements: water, air, fire and land. Traditionally, a God’s Eye was a spiritual symbol, and the weaving process was reflective and meditative.  The points of a God’s Eye represent the four elements of nature: earth, fire, air and water, and the centre of the ornament represents the eye of God, and is believed to have the power to see and understand things that the human eye cannot.  In some cultures, when a baby is born, the father of the household weaves the eye of the God’s eye, and each year, until the child’s 5th birthday, another ring of colour is added.
