3 Blessing & A Warning


In Jewish thought, a hamsa (hand) with fingers pointing down suggests divine blessings. A hamsa with fingers pointing up is a "stop sign," and suggests protection or a warning. Red is a color that protects, and here represents the lives of people who struggle today. The hamsa or hand is a universal symbol, and used often in Jewish, Islamic, and Indian symbolism, among other cultures. Four selvedge warping. The design is a response to COVID-19. From the Symbols Tell the Story series. 18x 12 inches. $600
