Hamsa Wall & Window Hanging
The Jewish name for the Hamsa is the Hand of Miriam, in reference to Miriam, the sister of Moses. In the Muslim community, it is interpreted as the hand of Fatima, the youngest daughter of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes chakras, energy flow in the body, the five senses, and the mudras that affect them. The Hamsa hand has always been associated with a female entity offering protection from evil and misfortune.
This Hamsa can be hung on a wall or in front of a window, with the hand pointing up or down. This piece is laser cut in baltic birch and then finished with a high-quality lacquer. The wood ring and brass hook are included for easy hanging. The piece arrives in a gift box with an information card included.
