Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

The hand of Miriam, in reference to Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, as well as the (5) chamesh hand. It serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting and getting protection from the evil eye, or more generally of providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God." It appears, often in stylized form, as a hand with three fingers raised, and sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. The symbol is used in amulets, charms, jewelry, door entrances, and other places to ward the evil eye. This spectacular giclee print is signed and numbered. This original print, looks like a true original art work. Colors are vibrant and saturated, keeping the crisp touch of the media, pencils, gouaches, acrylics, and the flow sheer water colors
