Staring Contest

My friend Chris brought this nazar to me all the way from Iraq. In many parts of the Middle East and the Subcontinent, glass charms with this design are prevalent, as they are thought to ward off any curse or evil eye cast at the bearer.

Sadly this bobble does not shield the bearer from the Universe at large. Thus I suspect my lifetime of ridiculous calamities will continue unabated.
