If you feel you may not have been getting the rub of the green of late, you might want to pop along to the Museum of Islamic Art. There are amulets in abundance there – 555, to be precise – in the “Khamsa Khamsa Khamsa: The Evolution of a Motif in Contemporary Israeli Art” exhibition that opened last week.

Most of us have encountered a khamsa – khamsot in the plural form, often spelled without the “k” – at some stage. They are all over the place, according to curator Dr. Shirat-Miriam Shamir, who shares responsibility for the exhibition layout with Ido Noy. That is patently evident from the layout at the museum. There are khamsot of practically every kind, shape, size, material, color and artistic genre going. The exhibits also span broad tracts of history, and feed off different cultural, ethnic and religious sensibilities.
