The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa and is 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 Jews and Muslims and others to provide defense against the evil eye.
Today my Doodlebugs created a simple Hamsa and decorated it with beads and wool.
