Hamsa (Hand of God)
Drawing with wood burning tool

  1. I love the mystical feel of this piece. Is there a symbolic reason it was made on two boards?

  2. No reason, I just wanted it bigger, so I stretched it to fit two boards.

    I love the symbolism of the Hamsa and I wear one around my neck. The eye symbolizes warding off evil, the fish symbolize prosperity and luck, and the five fingers serve as a reminder to praise God with all five senses.

    The wood burning was a LOT harder than I expected, so this design is very basic. The pendant I wear is super ornate and much more beautiful!

  3. You have so many cool tools! This is really lovely, too!
