WE ALL LOVE ACCESSORIES
Decorations and accessories have been in the human world for quite some time. What makes one accessory stand out more than the other is the creativity put into the piece. This pendant displays two motifs shared in Jewish and other artistic styles: the dove and the hamsa, both signs of peace.
What do you think the significance of placing the dove and a hamsa on top of one another in a single image?
