The Hand of Fatima

The Hand of Fatima (also appearing in Jewish lore as the Hand of Miriam) serves as an ancient talisman to avert the evil eye, and appears in stylized form as a hand with three fingers raised, sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. In Muslim traditions, the Hand is associated with Fatima, the daughter of the prophet Muhammad.
