Hamsa

Khamsa, or Hamsa, as it is more commonly known, is an Arabic word that literally means "Five", but also, "The five fingers of the hand". It may also be taken as a reference to the primary number itself. Early use of the hamsa has been traced back to ancient Mesopotamia what is now known as Iraq. The hand, particularly the open right hand, is a sign of protection that also represents blessings, power and strength, and is seen as a potent in deflecting the evil eye.

Instead of a hand I drew an abstract version using a pentagon and the nature inspired illustration that resembles the veins in the eye.
