eye image on front of ship hulls?
There is a tayana 37 in my harbour that has am image of an eyeball on both sides of the hull at the bow. I have seen this image on boats before, some complicated in design, others not. I have a vague recollection that it is an image used on Chinese ships to ward off evil spirits/sea monsters but can not come up with the right key words in a google search to learn more.
Can anyone enlighten me?
