These beautiful antique solid silver, handmade hamsa hands were found throughout my travels in Morocco from antique dealers in Essaouria, Atlas Mountains and Marrakech.
The Hamsa Hand, is a symbol of protection throughout the Middle East and brings the wearer health, wealth, happiness and prosperity. As well as protection from 'evil or negative energy'.
It is also known as the symbol of God, regardless of religious beliefs.
It is a beautiful sentiment and on my travels I was inexplicably drawn to them,
These are not brand new, knock offs or mixed metal pieces.
These are antiques, made by various tribes of the Atlas Mountains, each one is over 100 years old and is hand forged solid silver.
During my collecting, as with all things I acquire, the story behind them was intensely important to me.
Being antique, hand made and solid silver was paramount. Each one carrying a story, a blessing, a purpose.
Each hamsa hand has been saged and blessed. Cleared of old energy and ready for their new owners.
They will all be polished and prepared for their new owners.
I love these pieces so intensely and as always, only ever buy that which I would love for myself.
So here we have a beautiful collection of extraordinary, hand made, antique pieces - varying sizes and designs, saged, blessed and ready for their next life.
MEASUREMENTS : This hamsa hand is the MOTHER LOAD. A HUGE antique piece, hand forged intricate filigree work with two solid silver circles signifying HEAVEN and EARTH. There is a filigree circle beneath the two solid silver circles signifying the Universe/Cycle of Life. This piece is truly extraordinary. It is definitely a large statement piece and would even be a beautiful piece of wall art! The craftsmanship on this antique hamsa hand is actually insane. The sentiment and meaning of this beautiful piece makes my heart swell!
ONE OF A KIND
