Hintli nazar boncuğu

I love this picture. This was right outside a very swanky Swarovski showroom in Delhi. I love the colours (çok kırmızı!), the contrasts, the shadows and the texture of the dried up green chillies.

also, this makes me happy. and hungry. the problem with hintli anti-nazar devices is that i want to eat them; whereas blue glass i am more likely to leave alone.
