$$$ I do accept payment plans for this item, please message me before you purchase -- and we'll set up a custom listing for you. $$$


The embroidery is done on a cotton handkerchief that was painted with high-viscosity acrylic paint, which gives the background depth and shimmer.

The embroidery is done in silk and cotton, and intended to resemble filigree work set with jewels.

It has been set in a shadow-box style frame an inch deep, that has a gold edge and inside painted a deep "twilight" blue that also has shimmer that is hard to pick up in the photos. The frame provides a 1" shelf that small objects can be placed on, so it can serve as a personal shrine/altar -- as well as a piece of art.

It is signed in the lower right corner of the frame with my sigil, a pomegranate with the Hebrew letter ק in the middle - this does not show in the photos.

With the depth of the frame it is ready to hang as is, but could easily have a hanger affixed to the back.

The hamsa (also called Hand of Fatima in Islamic culture) is a ancient symbol of Divine presence and protection. Many people believe it to also represent the Divine Feminine, in particular. It has been used as a talisman and amulet, as well as for judaica decoration for centuries.

The hamsa here is based on a design by Urban Threads that has been adapted by the artist.
