Khamsa - Hand of Fatima HD083


Product Description

Brass Khamsa - Hand of Fatima.

The hamsa also romanized khamsa, is an Arabic word that literally means "five", the five fingers of the hand, is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. A universal sign of protection, the image of the open right hand is seen in Mesopotamian artifacts in the amulets of the Qāt Istar and the Qāt Inana and in the Buddha's gesture (mudra) of teaching and protection. Other symbols of divine protection based around the hand include the Hand-of-Venus (or Aphrodite) and the Hand-of-Mary that was used to protect women from the evil eye, boost fertility and lactation, promote healthy pregnancies, and strengthen the weak.
