A Skeletal Moroccan Hamsa
with Blue Beads

This is an odd Moroccan hamsa, or Hand of Fatima, as the hand is skeletal. It has five blue beads, combining the apotropaic powers of blue beads and five.

This hamsa was photographed in the Moroccan crafts store Marrakech Express. I am extremely grateful to the store for letting me photograph everything in their store.
