Title: Transitions

Inspiration/Details: This piece was inspired by working with one of our customers. During the process I pondered a lot about Transitions: a friend then told me about Hecta the goddess who helps with transition. She reminds us of the importance of change, helping us release the past especially those things that hinder growth. She helps us to accept change and transition. She asks us to let go of what is familiar and safe and secure and go the scary places of our soul. She loans farsightedness for you to see what lies deeply forgotten or hidden and helps you to make a choice and find your path. She shines her torch to guide you. she teaches us to be just or tolerant of those who are different. She leads us to see things differently to find greater understanding of ourselves and others. To release the old and find the new. This is my prayer that we release the old story and find a new story.

This is part of a series of Fairy Tale ojos, inspired by the work of Svetlanka Kami, a Russian currently living in India, whose work can be seen on facebook.

This piece has stones and crystals, weaving and lattice structure underneath. The work is all hand done requiring more time. This slightly higher in price.
Original design created by: Inga Savage. 

Size: 18'' x 18'' wall hanging

……..

History of Ojo de Dios: Ojo de Dios means “God’s eye” and is an ancient craft originating with the Huichol Indians of Central Mexico. The Huichol people, a name coined by the Spanish, refer to themselves as Virarica, which means “The Healing People”. We believe that our ojos de dios bring healing and focus to those that delight in them. We have expanded beyond the traditional four-sided ojo de dios, experimenting with different designs and complexity. Because of this, we often refer to our craft as mandalas instead of the traditional ojo de dios.

Each mandala is made with a foundation of dowelling (wooden or the like) and yarn and is often embellished with embroidery, beading, or other treasures that make each piece unique.
