A hamsa is a good luck charm, common to many cultures. This hamsa features the word “Mazel” or “luck”. It is made entirely of quilling, and the Hebrew letters and other accents are edged in 23k gold leaf. In addition, the inner bevels of both the inner oval mat and outer rectangular mat are hand-gilded. The piece measures 11 x 14 and is in a striking red, wooden scoop frame.
The price is $750, but it is not for sale at the moment – it will be in an exhibit at the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art in Tulsa, OK, from July 7 – September 17, 2017. It may be purchased from the Museum during that time, or from me afterwards.
