Hamsa hand trend - celebrity
The right palm is an image recognised throughout the Middle East and North Africa as a symbol of protection. Often depicted alongside the evil eye, it is believed that the Hamsa hand provides protection against evil spirits.

The symbol predates Christianity and Islam and carries different religious meanings as well as varying cultural references. In the Islamic faith it is known as the hand of Fatima, after Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra, Levantine Christians call it the hand of Mary, for the Virgin Mary and Jews refer to it as the hand of Miriam after Miriam, sister of Moses and Aaron.

Hamsa hand inspiration
Hamsa means 5 – referring to the 5 fingers of the hand. An open Hamsa hand is said to ward off evil spirits, where a Hamsa hand with closed palm brings good luck. The symbol is commonly worn on jewellery, but is also drawn on doors or walls to protect the house and it’s inhabitants. It is said to protect women from the evil eye, boost fertility, promote healthy pregnancies and strengthen the weak.
