in a city
It would be nice to put a hand of protection over the entire world. Who will protect us from ourselves?
How much left of it?
The waves are people.
In the end,
by, and including,
Working on my unfinished glove project brought to mind past projects of hands and eyes. The hamsa hand, which originated in the Middle East and North Africa, doesn’t always include eyes, but the double protection symbols add to the amulet’s defensive properties. The open hand serves as a guardian, but also promises luck, and the eye adds a spiritual dimension as a gateway to the soul, as well as safeguarding against evil intent.
