Fatima & Hamsa hand
Jewelry with Fatima's & Hamsa's hand
THE HAND OF FATIMA IS ALSO CALLED THE HAND OF HAMSA AND IS BOTH AN ARAB AND A JEWISH ANCIENT SYMBOL OF PROTECTION. THAT SOMEONE WATCHES OVER US AND PROTECTS US FROM THE EVIL EYE.
The symbol of an eye embedded in an open palm has had several names throughout the ages , including Hamsa , Fatima's eye or Fatima's hand, Miriam's hand, etc.
The symbol has been interpreted in different ways by researchers, but above all as a Jewish , Christian, Islamic amulet as well as as a pagan fertility symbol . Hamsa hand is the symbol of the hand with the eye and together these symbols mean protection. A watchful eye and a motherly hand. You can also say that the eye symbolizes presence, that we watch over ourselves and the hand that we take care of ourselves.
Hamsa or the hand of Fatima is a call to ourselves to be present and love ourselves as we are! The best protection we can have (besides luck and providence over which we cannot control) is that we take care of, cherish and respect ourselves.
