Chamsa 3 Ketubah
The hand of Miriam, in reference to Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, as well as the (5) chamesh hand. It serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting and getting protection from the evil eye, or more generally of providing a "protecting hand" or "Hand of God." It appears, often in stylized form, as a hand with three fingers raised, and sometimes with two thumbs arranged symmetrically. The symbol is used in amulets, charms, jewelry, door entrances, and other places to ward the evil eye.
