The Mano Fico, also called Figa, higa or Powerful Hand. Its form is that of a closed hand, showing the thumb between the index and middle fingers, indicating contempt and protection from impending evil. An amulet used to ward off the evil eye, it is also used against envy and jealousy and to protect against disease. In ancient times, mothers used to place the Higa (made from jet) beside new-borns. Originally from the Iberian peninsula, it eventually spread to different parts of the world under different names.
The Moon. A symbol with many different meanings. It is light in the darkness; an example of continuous regeneration; a representation of feminine power (and masculine in other cultures). Measure of time, symbol of Islamism, and also of beauty and purity… It is also related to madness, lycanthropy, the dark side of life, the door to hell...
Heart. It symbolizes human feelings, especially love, affection, and the capacity of connecting with other people.
