I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Boats With Eyes


The tradition of painting a pair of eyes on boats has existed for millennia and still remains strong. It serves various purposes:
  • The eyes rebuff the Evil Eye
  • They represent the protection of deities like Hours, Hathor, and primordial, all-seeing "Eye Goddesses."
  • The eyes activate the boat so that it can "see" where it's going and "see" the fish.
  • Eyes also invoke the power of Saint Lucy who, in addition to her Evil Eye fighting capacity, has a reputation of finding fish for the fishermen.
