The history of this stunning piece is astounding! What you’re looking at is an Antique Amulet that is almost 200 years old.
It is known as Phra Kru Wat Thai Talart, Pim Samadhi Buah Sorng Chan.
It translates to, Amulet of the Wat Thai Talart Stupa, Image of Lord Buddha in Meditating Posture on top of a Double Layered Lotus.
Wat Thai Talart is an ancient temple since the Ayutthaya period (1350 to 1767 A.D.). It is considered an important temple in the city during the Thonburi era (1767 to 1782 A.D.). It was documented that King Taksin the Great used it as a place for religious ceremonies. Wat Thai Talart importance as a holy site and holy temple continued well into the Rattanakosin era (1782 – 1932 A.D.) as well and is now a Royal Temple in modern Thailand.
According to historical records, it was consecrated in a Grand Ceremony in approximately Year 2362 B.E. (1819 A.D.) by Somdej Phra Phuttakosachan Khun, whom was one of the most cultivated and respected monk of the era.
Materials used in the making of the amulets were of utmost historical and spiritual value!
The important information to note is that the amulets of Wat Thai Talart were found inside different Stupas excavated at different times. It is essentially generalized into Kru Gao (Old Stupa) and Kru Mai (New Stupa).
Kru Gao pieces are known to be extremely rare and the most sought after among collectors. Out of all the amulets that were excavated in the Kru Gao (Old Stupa), only a handful of the Samadhi Buah Sorng Chan Variant was found.
The probability of chancing a Samadhi Buah Sorng Chan Variant is akin to seeking a needle on a haystack. The immense rarity is extremely difficult to articulate into words.
