A rare 19th century silver 'Hamsa' from Morocco
Illustrated in 'The Hand in Morocco', page 50. From the author's personal collection.
The 'Hamsa', or 'Hand of Fatima' as it is also known, is a hand shaped amulet that is worn (usually on a chain or neckalce) throughout North Africa and parts of the Middle East as a sign of protection. It is a potent symbol of defense that is commonly used for protection against the powerful evil eye.
The Hamsa offered here comes from the coastal city of Essaouira in Morocco's western Marrakesh-Safi region. The obverse face features a pair of overlapping fish in the form of a cross. Made entirely of high quality silver, a metal believed to represent purity and hold magical properties.
** Copy of book included with purchase of Hamsa.
Dimensions: overall height on display stand is 7.5 inches. Hamsa measures 4 inches x 2.5 inches.
