The two hands are connected with an hourglass with eyes in the palm of each hand, symbolizing 'seeing' each other.\u201cI became interested in Hamsa during the 'Arab Spring'. When researching Hamsa, I came across information both soothing and disturbing. I was looking for the 'soft, peaceful' symbology associated with Hamsa. This pendant was designed intentionally with two hands, an hourglass between them and all-seeing eyes in the palms representing peace and trust between nations and people.\u201d Some quotes that I found...The word \u201chamsa\u201d or \u201chamesh\u201d means five. There are five digits on the hamsa hand, but the number five has additional symbolic meaning in the Jewish and Islamic traditions. Five (hamesh in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews. It also symbolizes the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, ""Heh"", which represents one of God\u2019s holy names. It symbolizes the Five Pillars of Islam for Sunnis, and the Five People of the Cloak for Shi'ites.In the Jewish religion, the Jewish hamsa hand also symbolizes the Hand of God. Many Jews believe the hamsa pendant symbolizes the Hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. In the Islamic faith, the hamsa hand symbolizes The Hand of Fatima, daughter of the Prophet Mohammed.Many Jews believe that the five fingers of the hamsa hand remind its wearer to use their five senses to praise God. Hamsa hands often contain an eye symbol, which is a powerful talisman against the evil eye. It is most often worn as a hamsa necklace, but can be found as a decorative element in houses, on key chains, on other jewelry items, and is quickly gaining popularity as an amulet in baby carriages. In addition to averting the gaze of the evil eye, it brings its wearer or owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.In recent years, activists for peace in the Middle East have adopted the hamsa hand. Because hamsa hand symbology is believed to predate most modern religions, those who actively support a peaceful resolution to the ongoing Israeli conflict believe that wearing the hamsa hand highlights not only the similarities of Judaism and Islam, but also the similarities of the origins of the religions. The hamsa symbol is believed to originate from an ancient Middle Eastern religion, and some Jews and Muslims wear the hamsa as a gesture for hope, peace, and prosperity in Israel and other areas of the Middle East.All designs are hand carved in wax and cast in sterling silver. Each silver pendant comes on a black card with the name and symbolic meaning of the pendant along with a 30\u201d black satin cord so that it can immediately be worn as a necklace.
