Seven Species Large Copper Hamsa Wall Hanging
Copper Hamsa Wall Hanging: an exquisite and whimsical hamsa featuring the seven speices: the foods indigenous to the land of Israel. Each species brings a different blessing: Wheat expresses wisdom and knowledge; the spiritual and intelligent side of a person. Barley expresses matter, which in turn provides animal feed, an important element for human existence. The grape vine expresses gladness for a life full of joyous occasions: birth, marriage, holidays. The fig is the symbol of the Torah, to live a life of good deeds and consequence, and continuous learning: like the fig that grows slowly, today we learn a little, tomorrow a great deal more, and all cannot be learned in a year or two. The pomegranate, with its many seeds, symbolizes plenty and beauty and fertility, and the olive is a symbol of a blessed and happy family life and the olive branch has come to symbolize hope and peace. The date symbolizes a good and sweet life. Made with love and signed by artist Ahuva Elany.
The hamsa can be personalized – add a pomegranate at the bottom with names, dates, and events. Please call or email for more information and pricing.
