Hand With Eye

Hand With an Eye

The Hand with the Eye is a symbol that has been used for centuries to ward off evil and to bring protection and good luck. The Hand with an Eye is believed to help protect against the Evil eye and bad luck. The hand of the hamsa is often depicted with an eye on it, which is said to help ward off the evil eye.

The eye is often painted on the hamsa hand as a symbol of protection. The eye is a symbol of vigilance and watchfulness, and it is believed to help protect the wearer from harm.

Up or Down?

The symbol of the palm with the fingers down was used as a talisman to protect the inhabitants of the Mediterranean basin, long before the appearance of monotheistic religions.

Some researchers have linked the symbol to “Tanit” – the moon goddess from the Carthage culture, a Phoenician colony that lived in North Africa, in the region of present-day Tunis. In any case, in the 7th century this hamsa became the “hand of Fatima“.

While the fingers of the Jewish Hamsa are pointed upwards, the Muslim Hamsa points her fingers downward precisely.

Because it is an amulet and not a science – the direction does not matter, and there is no risk of bad luck due to incorrect use of the amulet.

However, when the Hamsa hand is facing down, it is said to represent abundance and positivity. So even though it may seem like wearing the Hamsa hand down is bad luck, it isn’t!

Whether you choose to wear the Hamsa hand up or down, it is still a beautiful and meaningful piece of jewelry.
