'Evil Eye' is a ~7x7 inch hand-pressed linoleum block print in gold ink on blue Lokta paper. Lokta paper is made from the bark of the bush named Daphne Papyrus, which only grows at an altitude of 6500ft or above in the Himalayas. Due to the hand-made nature of this paper, the colors may vary. Each print will be unique but will be close in shade to the prints in the photos.
The 'Evil Eye' print was inspired by MC's Jewish heritage and desire to make a print of protection. It is said that wearing, hanging, and even possing an 'Evil Eye' can help you to ward off variations of evil intention. Though this is not a traditional vision of an evil eye talisman, this one was created by the hands of MC Carey for Femme Prints.
*Please note that due to the nature of hand-carved linoleum block printing, every print will have its own unique quality. Each edition is inspected to be the best quality and similar, but I cannot ensure exact replica of the print pictured on this site. Part of the magic of printmaking is all of the print-specific marks like "noise" or carving marks that add to the feel of the print. Please take note of this when ordering.
