This design incorporates the traditional Middle Eastern symbol of the hamsah, which is thought to bring health, fertility, and good luck, with a pair of peacocks, symbolic of beauty, integrity, and holiness. The hamsah is surrounded by a floral design inspired by Pennsylvania folk art. The original was hand painted using high-quality designer gouache.
