This is an astonishing talisman from Ajarn James of Chiang Mai!
It has been carved from a chunk of elephant skull and yes, it is still a Panneng and they can also come from Tigers but they are very rare indeed. This is a wonderfully raw example of a carved Panneng that shows Rahu's face in his demon form with his fangs and it has life.
Both t front and rear of the piece have written akhara script and a Yant Na for great fortune, which is one of the main attributes for amulets made from bits of an elephant. As with all items from the great beast, it HAS to die in nature and if it dies in a supernatural way, even better. The feeling of this piece is exceptional and it will come with a belt loop, if you need one.
This is a large amulet at 5" across and it comes with Ajarn James card and kata.
Exceptional work and a rare example of this type of magic.
A Large and Phenomenal Carved Rahu Panneng by Ajarn James
Pieces of skull talismans have an ancient origin in Thailand, originally being worn as a belt buckle or woven into a vest. They came from Thailand's necromantic past and have survived and been adapted by the arrival of Buddhism to flourish to this day. Chin Athan means a piece that is supernatural in nature.
I offer a 30 days return policy with a refund on receipt of the item but for some items I cannot do that as they need blessing again by the maker, some of whom I do not know personally. This is a problem with spiritual items but I will always endeavor to help where I can.
