I visited some charity shops today and in one found this intriguing little item. It's a small black hand carved with a strange symbol that seems rather familiar(I kinda fell like I've seen it somewhere before....)
I personally believe it to be Indian and made from black soapstone due to it's weight and really sleek, coolness. As for the symbol in it's palm it reminds me a little bit of some similar things used in Buddhism? I don't know if I'm correct in thinking this? Is it a protective symbol? What else could this little black hand refer to? Is it a totem? An amulet?
Really puzzled and intrigued by this hand...
Cost- €3 ($3.57/£2.57)
