Dating back to the ancient Phoenician civilization, the open right hand was thought to honor Tanit, the Moon Goddess. It evolved into the hamsa hand, an important talisman throughout the Middle East, representing peace and prosperity. Today, the hamsa hand is a symbol of protection, power, strength and blessings that crosses  all cultures.
