The “Khamsa”, sometimes called “Hand de Fatma”, is a symbol used as an amulet, talisman and jewel by the inhabitants of North Africa, from which it originates, and the Middle East to protect against the evil eye. This term meaning “five” in Arabic and Hebrew, in reference to the five fingers of the hand, is associated with the five books of the Torah for Jews and the five pillars of Islam for Muslims.
The fascination with the power of money confronts the religious symbolism of the evil eye, which is sometimes the flip side.
An original and unique work whose symbolic significance is finally universal.
