Hamsa wall hangings are traditionally hung at your front door, in your entry way, in your living space, or over the a child’s bed; where ever you want protection from the evil eye. The Hamsa is a protective symbol found in many cultures. In Judaism it is called a Hamsa or Hand of Miriam or the Five Fingered Hand of God, in islamic tradition it is called the Hand of Fatima, Christians refer to it as the Hand of Mary. In Turkey you will see blue glass eye amulets, which are an abbreviated version of this icon of protection from the evil eye. One of the things I love about the protective hand is that it is found in so many cultural and religious traditions.
