Hamsa Hand Gourd Lamp
If you are building a collection as a crafter from Turkey and the Middle East, you can’t go missing two essentials. One the evil eye which I have a good variety and or course Hamsa Hand. A universal symbol, amulet or talisman whichever you like to use. Commonly believed to protect you, your family and home and bring peace and harmony
Hamsa Hand is slightly tricky to carve on a gourd. If you want have something distinctive, you need to have a good few ideas. That’s why I put a lot of thinking before I concluded on the design.
Eventually I decided to add elements of traditional henna work. So I focused on the craftwork on the hand with inspirations from henna that middle eastern ladies get made on special occasions. And I think this is what separates this design from the others.
This is a large size gourd lamp The calabash I use for these design usually 13-15 inches tall and 12-14 inches wide. Each gourd lamp is made to order. Each calabash is unique and unlike each other by creation, it is impossible to make an exact replica. AI promise you the same design, at same dimensions but not exactly the same calabash as product visuals.
Please note that this product is lampshade only. There is a large hole underneath the lampshade. (Please see photos). The lampshade will sit on any light source easily. There is a base option with complete on/off switch, cabling and power socket.
