Exploring God’s Creatures and Learning About Classifying Animals into Groups

God's Eye

The Huichol Indians of Mexico and the Aymara Indians of Bolivia weave brightly coloured yarn on a frame of crossed sticks to create a spiritual object called "Ojo de Dios" or "Eye of God". They were originally placed on an altar so that the gods could watch over the praying people and protect them.
The children created their own and decorated them with beaded tassels.
