Brass

Size: 2" x 2" / 5.5 x 5.5 cm

The hamsa (hand) shape has been used since ancient times for luck, protection, or decoration.  No guarantees about the first two, but everyone will agree that you have a thing of beauty!  This gorgeous large brass keyring will definitely attract attention and positive comment.

Originally part of a synagogue lamp, the hand shape of the brass hamsa that this keyring is based on is in the form of two birds on either side of a Star of David, with the Hebrew letter Heh (symbolizing the Divine Name) in the center.  The stylized bird is a familiar decorative motif on Jewish ceremonial art from North Africa.

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