Great Mai Kru come in many forms and they are used for both control and blessings. This is a fabulously old style Mai Kru that has been made from the root of a potent Takien tree that was pouring oil out of the trunk. This is one of the signs of a very active tree (not all takien are active) and it was feeding on the prai in the graveyard.
I periodically empty the wand stores of Ajarn Krit as he is one of the few Ajarns in the country who makes them individually. When he finds the right materials he puts one together and they can either be 'posh' forms, where the wood is carved and turned or like here, raw as hell. The string bound the hands at the funeral of a lady who died while pregnant and the blessing it has had is for great fortune and protection, which is a great combination.
I adore work like this as they hark back to ancient times. There is a ritual that needs to be performed to make this item yours but the ritual itself is wonderful and worth the time.
An incredible item.
Measures 13" and I have included a little extra cost due to the increased cost of posting an item such as this.
Standard registered Post ($10) is now available to the USA, Europe, the UK, and Australia for parcels up to the value of $200.
Orders over $200 and those to Canada, Japan, and NZ - by COURIER ONLY ($50).
Please write to me if unsure and we can work it out.
A Beautiful 13" Mai Kru Wand by Ajarn Krit from the root of a Takien tree
A Mai Kru is a teachers staff and is actually closely related to the Miit Mhor knives but they come in more varieties. These can be prai or Buddhist magic and be made from anything from potent tree roots to the metal rods that are used to turn over a corpse during cremation to ones that are made from holy trees
