Couldn't we all use a little added protection right now?
The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa is believed by some, predominantly Muslims and Jews, to provide defense against the evil eye. It has been theorized that its origins lie in Ancient Egypt or Carthage (modern-day Tunisia).
The design on our Hamsas was created by one of our in-house studio artists. Each Hamsa is made of ceramic that is handpainted and then fired in our kiln. The dimensions of the medium size are 4 3/4" tall x 4 1/2" wide.
