Hi, everybody! While I visited Mosteiro dos Jeronimos in Belem I saw people (they were tourists from Japan actually) touching the hand in the wall. This hand is a part of a marble wall decoration. And it is located at the entrance hall near the grave of Vasco da Gama. I stepped closer to check this hand. It was polished like thousand of people are touching it every day. Does anyone know what is this hand? Why everybody are trying to touch it? I didn't see the same decoration on the other wall or anywhere else in this place. I tried to find information in internet but didn't find any.
