"Apotropaic Hand" Screen Printed PatchRegular price €9,00
The symbol of the eye-in-hand is an apotropaic image that has been used since hundreds of years in many different cultures and that is popular up to this date. Wearing the symbol on someones body is believed to serve as magical protection from negative energies, such as the “evil eye”. This illustration was originally drawn for the “inktober” 2018.
ca. 17 x 12 cm. Each patch is printed and cut individually by hand. The inks I use are eco friendly water based screen printing inks, the fabric is sourced from a small local fabric store.
