Conch Shell Figa
This large and finely carved figa is formed from a dreamy, creamy conch shell for an amulet that connects you deeply to the ocean and its feminine powers. It has a beautiful repousse pattering on the cuff and a nice large bale.
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.
