Towey Rec. Center – “God’s Eyes”

On one Thursday after school at Towey Rec., the young artists there were challenged to make a craft called ‘God’s eyes.’  These ‘Ojos de Dios’ are associated with the Huichol and Tepehuan Indians, and were made as spiritual gifts for favor and protection.  Using tree branches, yarn, and a lot of patience, they wrapped their way to some beautiful creations.  First, they had to chose which 2 sticks they wanted to use as the “cross”.  They were long, short, thin, and thick.  The young artists then chose yarn in multiple colors to get the look they wanted.
