Nazar Boncuk

This Front Loader Caterpillar parked wel liked the other cars but what really caught my attention is the evil eye stone hanging in the front.
In Turkey, the evil eye Stone or known here as the Nazar boncugu, takes an important place in the culture and in the society. You hang it to protect yourself, your faily or your belongings. You can find everywhere, in house entrances, in cars, on clothing (especially on babies). But here to find one hanged like that was really fun.
