I have been wanting to have Hamsa for a long, long time. It is also known as the hand of Fatima, or hand of Mary, or hand of Miriam. This palm-shaped amulet is known as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. It is believed to provide protection against the evil eye.
I just love the beautiful shape. Whether it really protects you against bad intention, I think it goes back to what you believe in.
I thank my friend from Amedes who is finally able to source one for me 🙂
