The word Drishti means ‘a focused and strong gaze’. In India, it is believed that, when looking at anything beautiful, new and noble, the viewer’s gaze can lead to bad luck. So we create talismans to protect people and objects from bad luck. Its an integral part of the Indian culture.
I created my own version of the drishti talisman. Characterized by its big eyes and red tounge. They are essentially meant to look scary to keep bad luck at bay.
I’ve used them to make laptop stickers, badges, and earing. You can find here on my Instagram Story under ‘Shop’.
