This beautiful hamsa will add a touch of beauty to any wall you choose to hang it on! Its robust heavy metal body is perfectly accented with delicate filigree-style metalwork as well as the bright colorful red and turquoise beads.

This large wall decoration is based on a much smaller original piece, a child's amuletic pendant made in Kurdistan's Jewish community in the 19th century. It is part of the collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a short description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
