Old Ethiopian Leather Healing Scroll Protection Amulet evil eye. This is a leather amulet that is sewn up to contain a vellum protective scroll written in Ge'esh, a text not used outside of religious contexts in Ethiopia. The pouch contains evil eye wards on the front. This type of pouch is known as a Kitab and was to protect an individual from buda, a type of evil eye known in Ethiopia and Eritrea that would change the practitioner into a hyena. This scroll was written by the local priest or medicine man (debtera) and would invoke Coptic prayers to ward off evil for the wearer. These were made from around the 1400s until the 19th century. This one is very old and beautiful with lovely eyes and patina. It measures approximately 45 mm (including the loop) x 43 mm and is 13 mm thick. It would make an intriguing addition to an antique, religious, magic, or curio collection. It also can still be threaded and would make an interesting centerpiece in your jewelry design considering its patina, history and folklore. Thanks for looking and please check out my other listings.
