This gorgeous wood Hamsa wall hanging will add a radiance of meaning and style to your home or office! The colorful painted design features a charming decorative motif of pomegranates and birds.
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
The Hamsa symbol is the ancient symbol of Divine protection against negative energies and remains to this day a symbol of luck and protection, making it a popular decorative motif throughout Jewish art and jewelry.
