A Peacock and Cowrie Amulet
Against the Evil Eye

The cowrie is well known as an amulet for either of two functions, against the evil eye and for fertility. Because it is is pictured here with the peacock, a bird well connected to the evil eye for obvious reasons, we can assume that this is an amulet against the evil eye.
