Found on the streets of Bangkok, these authentic Thai Buddhist amulets have a rich history. Thai amulets, charms and talismen are made by Buddhist gurus for various purposes: invulnerability, good luck, fortune, protection from evil, etc and are made to be worn. They are in some ways comparable to "holy medals" in Catholicism.
An amulet may represent a famous Buddha image or a significant Buddha pose, may be blessed by a saintly monk or may be intended to bring the wearer good luck or to keep misfortune at bay.
These oxidized bronze Thai Buddhist amulet pendants feature an image of Buddha in a full lotus pose (a pose most often used for meditation). The reverse side has a mark that may be a signature of some sort. The patina on this heavy brass Buddha pendant ranges from white/gray, to brown, to turquoise and green. The amulets are sold individually and have an integral hanging loop. Those with the pointed arched design measure 37mm in length (which includes the integral loop), 24mm in width and 3mm in depth. We are selling these indivudally but have shown pictures of our collection so that you can get an idea of the range of patinas which are available. Let us select one for you.
Newly made in Thailand to look old.
