Amulet - Buddha Phra Nak Prok, single piece

Bronze alloy, Thailand, 20th century, size approx 74mm x 37mm x 3mm.

The Phra Nak Prok ("Naga Protecting the Buddha") image is said to bring the wearer good luck, positive energy, protection and harmony. It is also believed that Phra Nak Prok repels negative energies and destructive emotions.

According to Buddhist mythology, four or six weeks after Siddhartha Gautama meditated under the bodhi tree, the sky darkened for seven days and it began to rain heavily. Then the mystical ruler of snakes (naga), the seven-headed king Mucalinda appeared from under the earth, wrapped himself around the seated Buddha and raised his head above him, to protect him from the rain. After the storm subsided, the serpent king resumed his human form, bowed to the Buddha, and returned to his palace in great joy. The Mucalinda protecting the Buddha is a common motif, especially in Theravada Buddhism.

Note! Amulets cast from bronze are handmade and have been used diligently, j so each of them is its own unique individual. They may be dusty, dirty, heavily patinated and may have small surface defects.
