Hamsa is a respected sign for major religions that is variously known as the first five books of the Bible, the hand of Miriam, the hand of Mary, the hand of Fatima, and the five elements of Nature. General beliefs express that Hamsa makes happiness and luck for the holder. This symbol also represents the protection of man from evil and the devil. Hamsa is made in two common forms. One is similar to the normal hand, but the more popular form consists of two symmetrical thumbs.
