I made this protection qame'a (amulet) over 5 years ago, when I was studying Sefer Razi'el ha-Malakh. It is the outline of my own right hand, crushed from the accident 14 years ago. In, on & around it are letters which are the first otiyot of each line of a protection Psalm. It seemed fitting to use the silouette of my own broken & disabled hand which I write with to beg for cessation of pain & damage & the birth of healing in this work, rather than an idealised form of "nobody's" hand. A conceptual hand. A symbolic hand.
Instead, I used a *real* hand.
& the permanent injuries G@d gave me as the korban.
