"EYE OF GOD" BURNING BOWL

‘EYE OF GOD’ BURNING BOWL

Sold. Thank you Linda!

"Eye of God" Burning Bowl

The bazaar was an exciting challenge. She darted quickly in and around the many colorful vendors offering their wares of exotic spices, wooden icons and textiles from the far corners of the world. She would partake of those luxuries later, but for now, her goal was to find just one object; she was obsessed to find an ancient “Eye of God” or, as they call them in Turkey and Greece, “Evil Eye.”
She needed protection and the traditional "Evil Eye" was the answer. She had returned to Greece after having visited there many years ago. She remembered seeing the traditional blue glass bead, with an eye in the center, practically everywhere she went. On her tour to the majestic Meterora, the area in northern Greece where there are monasteries sitting high atop boulders, she remembered seeing the "Evil Eye" hanging from the bus drivers window. He had told her that it offered protection not only from an ill wishers evil glance, but from any problems one might encounter on the road. She learned that the tradition of carrying one or having one close at hand dates back to the Mesopotamians about 5,000 years ago.

Finally, her search ended. She walked into a shop that was off the beaten path. There was so much dust sitting atop everything that she was sure no one had shopped there for ages. In the corner, almost out of reach to her, was one single chain with not only one but two "Eye of God" beads. It had an ancient looking bell attached. She had found it! Her own personal "Eye of God." She left with her treasure and could visualize it placed on her burning bowl, which she kept on her altar. The frail shop owner who looked to be as old as time, gave only one warning: “I have waited a long time for you. I knew you would come for your amulet. You must keep your "Eye of God" safe and use it only for good, for you have a long journey ahead and you will be needed to help many.”

I am offering my burning bowl with the ancient Eye of God attached for $65.00. Let the owner beware: “Use only for good.” She is 4“ w x 4“d x 10” high. I have used stained glass for her base and fired the piece in my kiln to a high temperature so that you can write your problems and worries down and burn them away. Below is a description of the burning bowl:

Unity Church has a special ceremony each New Year’s Eve. A large bowl is placed at the altar and each member of the church is asked to write down problems or vices they wish to annihilate from their lives.. It could be a wish to quit smoking or drinking. It might be a desire to loose weight or to quit any of a number of addictions. Each person places their list into the bowl and at midnight, the bowl is lit. Everyone watches as the fire burns away all the troubles.

Let me know if you would like me to send her to you. You can purchase her on Etsy or contact me by e-mail. Thank you so much for your consideration.

  14. I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
