The Khamsa is a symbol used in amulets, charms and jewelry to protect against the "evil eye." An alternative Islamic name for this charm is the Hand of Fatima, in reference to Fatima Zahra, the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)—or the Hand of Miriam in Jewish faith in reference to Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. It represents a "protecting hand" or the "hand of God". The fingers can point up or down. The hands come in five shades of 'protective' blue. The design is composed of 10 amulets, thus the name Khamsa wo Khmeesa (five and five). A must have in every home, especially if you have envious neighbors.

Colour: 5 shades of blue. Approx. size: 200 x 50 cm
