Hamsa Hand Flower Star Pendant: "The Creator's Protective Hand"
Hamsa Hand Flower Star Pendant: "The Creator's Protective Hand"

Hamsa: the symbol of the hand (Hamsa, Semitic root meaning five) in Mediterranean cultures is ancient. There are speculations that the Jews were among the first to use it as a protective amulet. This tradition predates the Muslim use of the Hamsa (called the hand of Fatima, daughter of Mohammed) by at least a thousand years. The hand symbolizes: "the Creators protective Hand", and is at times decorated with an eye (the Creators watchful eye). When the eye is blue the intend is to ward off evil spirits

This Hamsa is decorated with a flower-like patters of Magen David stars. I have an interest in continuous oriental patterns and am always searching for new variations.
