Ojo de Dios, or the plural, Ojos de Dios
( the Spanish *j* is silent, or a light *h* sound, so roughly pronounced
*oh-ho's-day-DEE-ohs*), which is Spanish for Eye of God, or Eyes of God were a popular
folk art in the American Southwest during the 1970's, and I sold many hundreds to "trading posts" and
tourist gift shops in and around Albuquerque during that time.
My original inspiration came from seeing
such mandalas made by Huicholes of the remote mountains in central Mexico, and later seeing amazingly
similar yarn and stick creations woven by Tibetans.
Currently, January, 2018, I've relocated to Oaxaca, Mexico, and, after a time of adjusting, I'm again weaving
Ojos de Dios, this time from natually produced yarns from this area, which is abundantly rich in Native cultures.
Instead of selling via etsy.com, as I've done for several years now, I'll be listing examples of my work here,
and also I'll be posting my latest via my facebook page, Jay Mohler, YarnMandalas.com
