That Hand in Moroccan Furniture

Have you ever wondered why some Moroccan furniture products feature a hand-shaped emblem on them? The reason is because many Moroccan artisans will incorporate the Hand of Fatima into their work. The Hand of Fatima is a symbol that is traditionally used in Muslim culture to ward off the evil eye. The evil eye specifically refers to the feelings of jealousy and envy that so many people throughout society are plagued with. You can find this interesting symbol on the surface of a desk, the seat of a chair or even on the side of a desk among other large flat surfaces.

The Hand of Fatima is often designed to fit in with many geometric shapes on Moroccan furniture. The hand features a rectangular shape that makes it fit well in a spot. A typical hand will be about seven inches long and five inches wide in most cases but it can also be expanded or shrunk based on the amount of space that is available for getting this mark added onto any part of your furniture. It can also be designed with either a series of stitched lines around the body of the furniture or with a separate metallic item that can be sealed or stitched onto the furniture’s surface. It can also be added with a small gem-like stone in the center of the hand. This will create a beautiful appearance that features a strong symbolic meaning attached to it and should definitely be utilized when finding a special look.
