17 Sacred Mudras

Embarking on this project of reliquaries I am now starting to ask myself, "What is sacred?"

I have always loved the hamsa. I just traveled to Israel and saw the Sephardic symbol everywhere. It's simple design is beautiful and meaningful, protection and good luck all in one. The hamsa can be found in many religions and cultures throughout the Middle East and also in Christianity.  It's folkloric appeal makes it easy to appreciate as a secular as well.
