Leah Alexandra | Figa Necklace
The gesture of the thumb protruded between the pointer finger and middle finger has a variety of different meanings dating back nearly 8,000 years. The specific symbolism that gave rise to the charm that we refer to as a Mano Figa originate in Etruscan Italy.
Mano means hand and Figa means fig, a slang term for femininity. In ancient times, it was worn as an incantation to The Goddess, a call for fertility, virility and good times. Because the gesture carries such breadth of meaning, it's easy to imbue it with the significance you choose.
