The Hand of Fatima or Hamsa, as its often referred to, is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings it's owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.
It is also called the Hand of Miriam, named for Moses and Aaron's sister. There are two main styles of a hamsa hand: the most popular is the stylized hamsa hand with two symmetrical thumbs, but there are also hamsa hands that are not symmetrical and shaped like actual hands. Many artists are using the image of the hamsa hand in various aspects of their art including hamsa jewelry, paintings, sculptures, wall hamsas, and amulets.
Gouris are displayed in the home or given as a gift, to fend off bad vibes and protect the owner. To bring an aura of good luck and prosperity, while also being a unique and beautiful piece of art.
