Hamsa, "Hand of Fatima" or "Hand of Mary" is a symbol and amulet, especially popular in the Middle East and North Africa, where it is commonly used as a jewel or as a wall decoration. It depicts the palm of a right hand, which has been considered a sign of protection in many societies over the course of history. Hamsa is supposed to protect you predominantly from a cursed look. Therefore, this amulet is sometimes decorated with an eye.
