Large Vintage Silver Hamsa, South Morocco
A large vintage high-grade silver (tested) hamsa from the south of Morocco, made circa 1990. It has an unusual angular shape and is highly decorative. At the centre is a fibula (traditional Moroccan pin that ties clothing together) protected by two traditional Berber daggers known as ‘koummya’. A beautiful hamsa full of rich symbolism. Collectible.
