Snapshot: Nazar boncuğu

This is a "nazar" or evil eye charm from Turkey (in Turkish it's called a "nazar boncuğu"). I first saw nazars in the Khan el-Khalili market of Cairo. It's popular all over the Middle East and North Africa where you'll see them hanging from rear view windows in many cars, especially taxis.
