Drishti Bommai

Drishti Bommai

Many objects are used in India for warding off the evil eye - called drishti in tamil. These fellas are the most common though, often found painted at the back of trucks, hanging from the doorway of local business establishments, etc. I wonder if they will exist a few years down the line.
