HAND-FULL

maqua (dual maquat is attested). Colloquially, the word maqua is also used for the "hand" itself (called má in formal language); maqua may refer to the "complete hand with all five fingers", and the word is therefore also used for a group of 5 similar things (just like the dual maquat may refer to a group of 10 similar things; see FIVE, TEN). –VT47:7
