The symbol known as the Hand of God, or the Hand of Fatima, has its roots in the Near East in both the Jewish and Arabic cultures. It symbolizes healing and blessing, strength and protection, as well as the proclamation of one's faith.
The table can be used outdoors or inside in an informal living area. It can be used to create a sacred space or altar in any area of your home or garden where you want a spiritual focus.
