The Korb Sian Mask to Phra Laks by Ajarn James of Chiang Mai
Korb Sian masks are truly remarkable items as they contain the Deity or Angel that they represent. The large ones that cover the whole head are impossible to post and this face mask version is the only way to get these out of the country.
The consecration for these is lengthy and Ajarn took a long time to construct the whole thing himself. He did the paper mache work, painted it, scripted it and then spent a week consecrating it to produce a remarkable piece of magic. Masks such as this contain the deity himself and Phra Laks is known for Saneah and Metta. He is the golden faced deity that is so popular with the works of Ajarn Subin and the Na Naa Thong blessing. This is a way to have that blessing in your home and this makes my hands go a bit numb when holding it. It also has the ability to change an altar to something brighter, which has been reported by the two people by bought these before. I am trying to get him to make a Phra Ngang version and he is working on the script as it is a more difficult process to achieve.
Measures 7.5" long and I think I will keep the next one...
A remarkable piece of magic.
