An Amazing Israeli Hamsa

$75

$75

Features

  • You should hang a hamsa in your home to protect yourself and your loved ones as they do throughout the Middle East and North Africa. An ancient symbol of protection harking back to ancient Egypt and Carthage - Jews, Christians and Muslims alike continue to use it today to ward off the evil eye. In fact, it has many names – Hand of Fatima, Hand of Mary, Hand of the Goddess, Hand of Maryam. This is a most unusual example – a velvet hand that has been embroidered, appliqued and embellished with beads and fringe, with a dove of peace centered on the hand. The naïve, folky colour combination is heaven. From Israel. A vintage find from our cabinet of curiosities. Unique piece.
