In Italian folk magic, the "fig hand" known in current times as the "figa" hand (in Italian - mano in fico) is a sign that turns away
evil, or reveals its presence (which in turn makes it flee). Our sterling silver amulet is a traditional design of a
fist with the thumb jutting out between the index finger and middle finger. In
common usage the gesture was also used to reveal an unfaithful mate, which is a
later adaptation of the symbolism in mainstream Italian culture.
It measures from the top of the bail to the tip of the thumb 1-3/4" long and is 12/" at the widest part of the hand.
It is fully 3-D and AWESOME!
