Cast in the shape of a hand, this beautiful amulet is known as a hamsa. Although decorated with a typical North African foliate design, European influence is evident in the fluted cuff.
Amulets were intended to guard their owners' families and property from natural disasters, spells, and evil spirits. Some were used to heal sickess and cure infertility; others were meant to shield the traveler from peril, to promote success and bounty, and even to secure the affection of friends and lovers.
A sterling silver chain or black silicone cord in your choice of length are available for an additional fee.
This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem together with a description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
