A218 - SOLD
30 inches
Pendant 4.5" x 3"

The brass chain and two silver beads are from Yemen, but the highlight is a large
old hamsa pendant, a traditional amulet to ward off the jealous or evil eye, used
throughout the Middle East for centuries. The eight-pointed star was a symbol
which marked early human understanding of the intelligent order that underlies
our universe. Today, it carries religious and mystical associations, also know as the
khatim, or seal of the prophets. No clasp - the necklace fits easily over most necks.
