Essaouira Hamsa with Rose with Eight Petals 4
- Essaouira Hamsa with Rose with Eight Petals 4
- Size Approx. 3 1/8" x 2"
- This particular style of Hamsa is from the town Essaouira. The Hamsa body appears to be cast 800 Silver (80% silver content) which was then hand finished and stamped with a Rose with Eight Petals pattern. The stamped Hamsa then received a Silver Dirham coin hanging from the bale.
- The Rose with Eight Petals is an Arabic symbol of Love and the coin a symbol for Wealth and Plenty.
- The center of the Hamsa is an original antique Moroccan Silver Coin with the Seal of Solomon Hexagram symbol.
- The Seal of Solomon (or Ring of Solomon) is the signet ring attributed to King Solomon in medieval Jewish tradition and in Islamic and Western Occultism. It was often depicted in either a pentagram or hexagram shape; the latter also known as the Star of David in Jewish tradition.
- This ring variously gave Solomon the power to command demons, jinn (genie), or to speak with animals. Due to the proverbial wisdom of Solomon came to be seen as an amulet or talisman, or a symbol or character in medieval and Renaissance-era magic, occultism, and alchemy.
- The legend of the Seal of Solomon was developed primarily by medieval Arabic writers, who related that the ring was engraved by God and was given to the King directly from heaven. The ring was made from brass and iron, and the two parts were used to seal written commands to good and evil spirits, respectively.
- Origin is Morocco circa 1950
