A God's eye, also known as Ojo de Dios in Spanish, is a spiritual and votive object made by weaving a design out of yarn upon a wooden cross. They are commonly found in Mexican, Peruvian people and Latin American communities, among both Indigenous and Catholic peoples. The Huichol Indians made these decorative, ceremonial shields with colored yarn and sticks. They were woven spiritual symbols and for protection in ancient Mexico and are still popular as a decorative craft.
