Hand of strength Necklace$122.00
Figa Hand of Strength Necklace in Bronze . Each one is handmade and uniquely texture.
This hand of strength is created in a bronze and copper mix ( Recylced) capped handcarved beefalo bone - naturally and ethically sourced - beefalo is a cross between a beef and buffalo - thus the bone is much finer than a normal beef bone. Looks and feels like ivory. The very fine figa hand has been hand carved by JJ my wonderful friend that discovered bone carving as a therapuetic tool when in rehab many years ago.
Inspired by the figa hand charms which the gesture uses a thumb wedged in between two fingers. This gesture is most commonly used to ward off the evil eye, insult someone, or deny a request. Because of its origins in Southern Europe or Latin Europe, the gesture was imported to Latin America.
This hand is a raised fist, or the clenched fist, is a symbol of solidarity and support. It is also used as a salute to express unity, strength, defiance, or resistance.
