The "God’s eye" is one of the most important magical objects in the Cora and Huichol worldview. It is a concentric lozenge-shaped fabric made of yarn, cotton or sheep's wool, mounted on two or more stick, representing, on the one hand, the earth and, on the other, an "instrument to see". The story tells that once the mother goddess wove the first God’s eye  (cha'anaka for the Coras, tsikuri for the Huicholes), winding her own hair around the arrows of her sons. When she finished it, she placed it on the ground and ordered all the gods to dance on top of it. In this way the world spread out into space. Thus, the elaboration of this type of object and its use in a ritual implies in itself the creation of the world.
