Hamsa For Home
“Hamsah” – from Arabic meaning “five”. This is a local symbol with five fingers of the open hand warding off against the evil eye. The verses, from Proverbs: “A house is build by wisdom, And is established by understanding. By knowledge are its rooms filled with all precious and beautiful things,” are cut out from the Hamsah while the word “House/Home” is cut out with a bigger font.
