In ancient Mesopotamia, Pazuzu was the king of the demons of the wind, brother of Humbaba and son of the god Hanbi. He also represented the southwestern wind, the bearer of storms and drought. Although Pazuzu is considered to be an evil spirit, he drives and frightens away other evil spirits, thus protecting humans against plagues and misfortunes.
A popular god in Indian mythology, Kuber rules over money and the material. Kuber is well fed, dwarf-like, and often carries a bag of gold. His domain is a garden of perfect happiness, where all may be obtained without exertion or struggle.
The Hand of Fatima (Hand of Miriam) is an ancient talisman that symbolizes feminine power. Originating from the Hebrew word hamesh, literally meaning five, the hand is worn as a defense against negative energy, deflecting the gaze of the evil eye away from the wearer.
