The Truth About the 'Evil Eye' and It's Interpretation on Gourds by Rising Star.

Whats known in the western world as an 'evil eye' is called a 'nazar' in our country.

I didn't know that our 'nazar' was known as 'evil eye' until I started my online business. I was very surprised to see that something, some symbol or some object which has been adored by our culture for many centuries had a name associated with 'evil'. I can understand why it is called 'evil' but whoever has come up with it could have come up with something more descriptive and I am afraid the 'evil' bit doesn't reflect what 'nazar' is about in reality.

What's the truth about the 'evil eye' anyway?

Let me tell you a little bit more about 'Nazar'. Nazar is something bad and unpleasant happens to you as a result of envy or jealousy. It can have any form. Catching up a disease or getting sick, psychologically or physically. One of your belongings may get lost oır damaged. It is an unpleasant occurrence to you or to your belongings which will upset you somehow. Depending on the strenght of nazar, these effects can be less or more harmful. However, a 'Nazar' will take place after jealousy or envy. Otherwise, it will not be called a 'Nazar'. Someone had to be envious of you and create a negative energy towards you and then you should experience something unpleasant. A Nazar is not about and not necessarily has to be about all the bad things that happen to you.

Although there is no proven explanation or a scientific research, 'an evil eye' is supposed to protect you from this bad experience which originates from envy. My personal understanding is that the beautiful deep blue of this amulet catches the eye of the envious person and absorbs the energy directed towards you. Anyone who is envious or jealous will generate a negative energy, deliberately or unknowingly. This energy will reach to you and depending on its strength, you will be affected. This blue object in the form of the eye will catch and absorb this energy consecutively protecting you. This is what I believe happens and again I believe most people would agree

with me. I have witnessed many occasions that the glass evil eye simply chipped or crushed into pieces. I believe this simply means that its body wasn't able to carry the load of the energy stored inside. And that's why I believe the term 'evil eye' doesn't reflect the true function of this ancient Middle Eastern amulet.

Gourd Lamp Handmade Evil Eye Theme

No matter what it is called, as a workshop from the Mediterranean, we keep a few evil eye designs in our collection permanently. And every now and then we will add a new evil eye design. At the end of the day, it is a part of our culture. And the gourd lamp design that you see in the photo and video above is the most popular one so far. We never gave a name to it unlike the rest of our collection. She is the best seller with three sections appearing as the evil eye over white airbrush and fine drill work.

The other gourd lamp design which we call 'The Three Blue Gates' is slightly different than the first one. Built on the entire body of the calabash, keeping the head section, we drill the whole body and add charm by placing beads into some of the drill holes. We airbrush the gourd lamp with tones of blue with a focus on the three evil eye sections spread evenly on a horizantal axis. Once used with a strong yellow light source, the effects that this gourd lamp creates can be very impressive.

A third design and a personal favourite 'The Gourd Protective' has a plain white surface, fine drill work at changing diameters, three sections in the form of an evil eye with blue and yellow airbrush work. She looks so neat and strong under daylight and once lit in the night time, the appearance changes into something else spreading positive energy to the

athmosphere. There are additional three evil eye beads placed on the shoulder section adding more attraction to this gourd lamp design with a cool attitude.

And finally a new addition to our evil eye theme collection 'The Behold'. An evil eye interpretation with a minimalist attitude and side craft. And ı must confess again one of my personal favourites and a gourd lamp that I personally use at home. I will leave the description to the amateur video I made myself.
