For their houses they used big Daghdgans which were hang on the entrance or somewhere could be seen. Daghdgans were made also for people and animals. Little Daghtgans were used for newborn children in order to protect them from bad eye. It was wide spread to hang Daghdgan on the necks of domestic animals. They were made from wood especially from the trees which considered holy: from walnut, oak, beech and different fruit trees.
