Both of these palm up hands were drawn during a very long cnnecting flight  in UAE with some pens bought in the airport. I decided to draw my left hand with my right and visa versa.


Original drawings are H30 x W23cm H12 x 9inch on cancon Illustration board with the digital print set at H25 x W20cm 8x10 inch. These drawings are not possible at a larger size. The original drawings are available to buy in my drawings section.


Inspired with the Hansa in mind which was all around me I drew a hand shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa is believed by some Muslims and others to provide defense against the evil eye. It has been theorized that its origins lie in Ancient Egypt or Carthage (modern-day Tunisia) and may have been associated with the goddess Tanit.


The Hand of Fatima also represents femininity, and is referred as the woman's holy hand. It is believed to have extraordinary characteristics that can protect people from evil and other dangers.

  • About this download

    About this digital download:

    A link to the image will be sent immediately upon payment.

    This is a large file at 300dpi which can print up to H30 x 23cm 10x8inch so will fit fine inside most standard paper sizes up to that size and frames with a border.

    Although you can print on to any paper, I recommend an archival fine art paper if you intend to use as an art print. An excellent choice would be Hahnemeuhle rag paper in a satin or vellum finish.

    Printing on paper between 200 and 300gms will work in most home printers and will give your print a firm place to fix. You can also use the image for a canvas, aluminium or other print.
