Yair Emanuel Large Wood Painted Hamsa - Jerusalem (Color)
Size: 3.1" x 5.9" / 8 x 15 cm
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! The design features a cheerful colorful Jerusalem motif. The design was hand-painted with a brush using acrylic colors and then lacquered. Vivid and harmonious colors characterize the hand-painted wood.
