The Hand of Fatima, also know as Hamsa Hand has been meticulously engraved into the center of this lovely blue Soapstone Fatima Incense Burner. The hand painted white engraving creates a striking contrast against the deep blue color of the soapstone. This powerful Middle Eastern symbol represents the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a symbol of protection, happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Each of these ash catchers have a pre-drilled hole to hold an incense stick, but they are perfect for burning incense cones too! Please allow for slight variations, as these are hand made items using natural materials.
