The hamsa means literally “Five” (Arabic: خمسة khomsah, also romanized khamsa, Hebrew: חמסה). The Hamsa (hamsah) is a palm-shaped amulet commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. Depicting the open right hand, the Hamsa symbolism is an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa (hamsah) is believed to provide defense against the evil eye.
The number 5 is situated at the half-way point on the axis of numbers and symbolizes balance. The number 5 is composed of 1=G-d and 4=Matter. It stands for the Lord s spirit as it was realized in matter, in the form of Man, who serves as a bridge between the two. The number 5 symbolizes Man, blessed with five senses that link him to his surroundings, providing the spiritual being with a material world. The Ears of wheat, which are associated with bread, symbolize plenty, blessings, fertility and the primordial.
