$ 365.00

  • Essaouira Hamsa with Eagle Totem 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 pattern. The stamped Hamsa then received a Eagle Totem, which was cast in 92.5 Sterling Silver, and soldered on to the 800 Silver base. This addition to the Hamsa base accounts for the discoloration surrounding the Totem.
  • The Eagle is a skilled hunter and survives in the harsh desert climate. The Eagle became a symbol among Berber warriors of Strength, Prestige and Honor, and Deadly Beauty. Literally "Strength to Hunt" for what one needs. Honor and Courage.
  • Size Approx. 3" x 1 3/4"
  • Materials: Cast and Pattern Stamped 800 Silver (80% silver content) Hamsa body with a 92.5 Sterling Silver Eagle Totem soldered on to the base.
  • Origin is Morocco circa 1950.
