ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC AMULET IN THE INDUSTRY
“A warrior known for his invincibility and also for his charisma. He is one of the most recognized cultural hero of the ancient Ayutthaya era. His name is Khun Paen..”
This featured amulet is more than 400 years old! It is the oldest and most recognized Phra Khun Paen in the whole Thai Amulet industry!
Supposedly to be consecrated under the direction of King Naresuan The Great to commemorate his victory against the King of Burma! It was said that approximately 80,000 pieces were made and they were all placed inside the Stupa of Wat Bang Krang in Supanburi.
Amulets are placed in Stupas to commemorate significant historical events and it also serve as a time capsule for the future generations to be reminded of the important event that took place, as well as giving the future generation the opportunity to remind themselves of the continuity of Buddhism.
When it was finally excavated centuries later, it was found out that there are two general variants:
1. Plai Diao ( Single Piece )
2. Plai Khru ( Twin Piece )
Plai Diao variants are more popular and sought after thus the prices were more expensive than the Plai Khru variants. Due to the difference in prices, dishonest individuals then proceeded to separate the Plai Khru pieces into two thus misleading people to think that they are the Plai Diao variants!
This beautiful featured amulet is the actual Plai Diao variant. It is known as the Soom Prah-Too mould. Condition of the item is very beautiful despite being an amulet with a few centuries of history behind. Important features are still very much intact with the original texture immaculately preserved.
INCLUSIVE OF A VINTAGE SOLID GOLD FRAMING!
