This wall hanging is most likely from Turkey and made by the nomadic Yörük people of the Anatolia region. The body of the wall hanging is made of a wool felt and is decorated with a variety of small objects including beads, buttons, scallop shells, plastic stars, patterned kilim rug fabric and wool tassels. In the center of the wall hanging is the blue evil eye amulet or Nazar Boncuk, which is made from glass paste. The Nazar Boncuk symbolizes the jealous and envious look of others, which, according to the popular belief, would have the power to cause various misfortunes to a person or his property. Turkish people believe that this amulet protects its holder from the bad energies by absorbing them. The nazar originated in a small village in Turkey from where it spread around the world. It is common to see it in homes and shops in Turkey, but also in Greece, Pakistan, Iran and other Asian and Middle Eastern Countries.
