An ancient Italian symbol, the mano cornuto (mano=hand corno=horn) is one of several gestures meant to protect from malocchio, the the evil eye. The evil eye was thought to particularly target mothers and babies, men's sperm, and fruit bearing trees - forces of life! The gesture was to be performed with fingers pointing down, unless your intention was to offend instead of protect.

This particular mano is carved in bone or horn - likely from narwhal - and capped in gold plated metal. The surface is even and softened, and the pointer finger broke off at the knuckle long ago, the amputation worn smooth. Though we can't be sure if it's as potent as an amulet, it's a gorgeous style to add to your charm collection.
