Wooden Hamsa Hand Model


Sitting in my studio the other day looking at my wooden artist’s hand model and thought “that would actually make a really cool Hamsa!”


I pulled out a pencil and I started drawing an eye and some patterns over the little wooden hand.



Then I traced over my lines with a dark blue sharpie.



Initially I thought I’d just use the sharpie, but it lacked definition, so I thinned a little blue ink and painted in some of the sections.


Much better! 

It looks perfect with some of my blue and white vases in my living room.

      Thanks so much!
      I’m also a hamsa fan, and am starting to collect them too. I’m very happy with this one, so much so I am thinking of doing some more like this, maybe in different colours!

    wow – it looks absolutely great – by the way do you know of a book or so where I can read up on meanings of things like the hamsa hand? 🙂

      Thanks Frilka!
      Hmm, I don’t know if a specific book or website but I would recommend a good Pinterest search about spiritual symbols, that ought to give you a good place to start. 😉
