God's Eyes or Ojo de Dios

Have you ever made "God's Eyes" as a child?  did you know the history of this interesting art craft?

God's Eyes aka Ojo de Dios originated from the Huichol tribe in the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico. The Huichol call their God's Eyes Sikuli, which means "the power to see and understand things unknown."  When a child is born, the central eye is woven by the father. Then one eye is added for every year of the child's life until the child reaches the age of five.
