Just why do people add eyes to their boats? …Hmm….?
There are many Asian folklore about boat needing eyes. The Chinese believe that every boat needs eyes to safely bring itself and its crew back to port in heavy weather. Some believe that eyes on a boat ward off demons… could it be that demons lure the boats away and never to be seen again?
……………So its a folklore thingy, but hey.. maybe eyes do add a little something to boats… In the past era, all the boats in a Asian harbour have the same “eyes”. That makes it easy to identify the non local boat in the harbour. I did a little Google research and LOOK! at all the different looking “eyes”. I wonder if they is 1 artist in each port that specialize in eye painting during that time..
Well, this the modern adaptation for yachts.. 🙂 Precision cut with vinyl sticker material that is waterproof and UV resistant. Low maintenance, high durability.
So what do ya think of these new eyes? Am thinking of eyes for Eleanor too.. 🙂
