Hamsa Wooden Wall Plaque
The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa is believed by some Muslims and others to provide defense against the evil eye. It has been theorized that its origins lie in Ancient Egypt or Carthage and may have been associated with the goddess Tanit.
