Evil Eye

This is a clay sculpture of and evil eye.  The evil eye has palace in many western asian religions as well as Islam and Judaism.  The idea is that the evil eye is a curse that is inflicted with a glance that brings misfortune.  The eye is also a talisman in the shape of an eye or a hand with an eye in the palm that can ward off the curse.  The piece I created is based on the Indian version of the eye called a Hamsa.   

The piece is my first real experience with the material Super Sculpy.   I hardened this piece with a heat gun and painted the eyeball with water color gauche.  I also smoothed the clay by brushing a rubbing alcohol before hardening.    Below is a gallery of the finished piece and pictures before painting and smoothing.
