Brass

Originally part of a synagogue lamp, the hand shape of this brass hamsa is in the form of two birds on either side of a Star of David, with the Hebrew letter Heh (symbolizing the Divine Name) in the center. The stylized bird is a familiar decorative motif on Jewish ceremonial art from North Africa.

The hamsa (hand) shape has been used since ancient times for luck, protection, or decoration. No guarantees about the first two, but everyone will agree that you have a thing of beauty! This gorgeous large brass replica will definitely attract attention and positive comment.
