The Hamsa Hand (Arabic) or Hamesh Hand (Hebrew) is an old and still very popular apotropaic Amulet for magical protection from the envious or Evil Eye. The words Hamsa and Hamesh mean “five” and refer to the digits on the hand.
The upheld hand intended to ward off evil spirits and deflect the bad energies of hostile forces, is a powerful symbol, as important today to its believers as it was hundreds of years ago in North Africa from where it originated. The first Hamsa shape was found on Phoenician ritual stones in North Africa going back to pre-Islamic days. The Hamsa Hand appears both in a two-thumbed, bilaterally symmetrical form, and in a more natural form in which there is only one thumb.
Because the Hamsa or Hamesh Hand protects against the Evil Eye (Buri Nazar, Drishti), the design in some merges into another design called the Eye-in-Hand motif. In those instances, a realistic or stylized eye appears in the center of the palm of the hand. These are supposed to be more powerful ones. But what does it mean? The eye-in-hand manifests the integral and interactive bond between two essential human functions: sensing/observation (the Eye) and doing/acting (the Hand). Together these two abilities represent the most effective symbolic condensation of the ideals of human existence – omniscience (all-knowing) and omnipotence (all-powerful) – in a very simple two-part icon : the Eye in the Hand.
The Hamsa Hand is used to draw good fortune, happiness, love, and good health to the wearer or keeper. In its role of protection, it is also believed to protect from the evil eye. It also brings blessings from the Power Above.
