Dordolec: Evil Eye Dolls

One of the first things I noticed when I came to Albania were all the random dolls, teddy bears, and scarecrows hanging outside of half finished buildings, doors, and homes. In Albania these dolls are meant to protect against the evil eye. I have been documenting them for the past two years in anticipation of sharing a blog post with you about this interesting tradition. To read more about dordolec check out this awesome blog that explains it much better than I can. Otherwise, feel free to check out some of the awesome dolls I have found across the country.
