Mother Maiamai & The Hamsa Hand

Mother Maiamai of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a playful depiction of what is known as the hamsa hand, or simply khamsa. This ancient symbolism is feminine, and aids in the protection of children. It’s not a simple #gametheory when the side quest’s narrative lines up so well with the character’s symbolic meaning. Nintendo and #legendofzelda do such a wonderful job with the easter eggs in their designs.
