COMMENTS: Just purchased from a local estate a filigree hamsa hand. Crafted in sterling silver with a dark age patina. In its simplest form the symbol for Hamsa is the hand. It is talismanic symbol that they believed would protect them from harm against the evil forces and bring them goodness, abundance, fertility, luck and good health. Hamsa is an icon used by man as a defence, in his struggle against the forces of evil.
