Beautiful and uniformly preserved lacquered texture found glistering on the entire surface of this stunning piece!
The condition is stunning to say the least! Competition grade excellence!
Originally lacquered pieces are known to be a very rare and highly sought after among collectors. These pieces were lacquered from the temple originally due to an attempt to safeguard the amulet from disintegrating as Wat Pak Nam amulets were known to be extremely fragile. Not all of the pieces from the 1st Batch were lacquered. Originally lacquered pieces constitutes to a minority percentage out of the 84,000 pieces made, making them a very, very rare encounter.
One of the primary reasons why Wat Pak Nam amulets are so immensely popular and sought after by everyone is due to the fact that it was blessed by one of the most respected Holy Monks of Thailand, Luang Por Sodh.
Luang Pu Sodh was the abbot of Wat Pak Nam Phasi Charoen from 1916 until his death in 1959. He founded the Thai Dhammakāya school in the early 20th century. As the former abbot of Wat Pak Nam Phasi Charoen, he is often called Luang Pu Wat Pak Nam, meaning “the Venerable Father of Wat Pak Nam”. He became a well-known meditation master during the interbellum and the Second World War, and played a significant role in developing Thai Buddhism during that period. He is considered by the Dhammakaya tradition to have rediscovered Wicha Dhammakaya, a meditation method believed to have been used by the Buddha himself.
A total of two batches were made:
1st Batch – Year 2493 B.E.
3rd Batch – Year 2499 B.E.
Due to the immense popularity of the 1st Batch of amulets that there weren’t enough pieces to fully distribute to the rest of the devotees visiting the temple. So, the 2nd batch was made. It was made using the same material and the same mould as the 1st Batch thus it is near impossible to differentiate between the 2 batches. They were then subsequently consolidated into one batch.
INCLUSIVE OF A CUSTOM MADE SOLID GOLD OPEN/CLOSE CASING!
