Beautiful large ceramic Hamsa. The Hamsa Hand is a popular Jewish symbol depicting five fingers that serves as a reminder of the metaphorical Hand of God. The Hamsa is most commonly used as a sign of protection to defend against negative spiritual forces, colloquially known as the evil eye. In Kabbalah, the Hamsa represents the hand of the Creator, which is the ultimate defense against all evil. The Hamsa also signifies blessings, strength, and power, and is commonly placed near doorways of the home.
