36 Summary and Remarks

The hamsa and the fish are symbols used against evil eye, for good luck and fertility. These symbols are common in the island and are used as amulets (fig. 2). The Djerban Jews paint the external walls of a dwelling house with similar motifs to protect a newly-married couple and to wish them fertility (See: Sc.94(PC)-21). 

38 Suggested Reconstruction
39 History/Provenance
The Star of David was used as a coin for redeeming the first born in the coastal city Nabeul and was brought by the family to Israel.

36 Summary and Remarks

The hamsa and the fish are symbols used against evil eye, for good luck and fertility. These symbols are common in the island and are used as amulets (fig. 2). The Djerban Jews paint the external walls of a dwelling house with similar motifs to protect a newly-married couple and to wish them fertility (See: Sc.94(PC)-21).
