18k Gold Jade Figa
A deep mossy jade with light translucent sets this figa apart. The carvings are well executed and the 18kgold color pairs well with the verdant body.
The Mano Figa is a symbol that dates back thousands of years. The thumb, tucked between the pointer and middle finger represented fertility and womanly power, closely tied to the goddesses Luna and Venus. You can see it's a rather sexy gesture that wards against evil and brings out your feminine attributes and protects you against the evil eye.
