Hammsa


Hammsa: Protector of sky blue waters

Apparently, few people realize that the iconic palm-shaped amulet,
popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, depicting the right hand with 2 thumbs,
an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history,
and believed to provide defense against the evil eye. . .
 is called a Hamsa.

But that's OK!
I guess it's my own inside joke,
and I'm still giggling!
