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 jetting 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.
