I love the imagery of 4 Ears 5 Eyes amulets and Kruba Boonlert is THE maker for this lucky old demon, despite being well into his 80's but these were made in 2556, 8 years ago and came from old stock.
The use of mercury in this region goes back to ancient times and this is one of the oldest wicha for it. This is a Bia Gae amulet and they come from very old stock from the dealer for Phra Ajarn O. The amulet consists of a cowrie shell that has to have 32 'teeth' at the opening to tally with the components of the human body in Thai Buddhism.
The Thai magicians have a blessing that can remove the poison from mercury and therefore, I have watched videos of them pouring mercury into the shell via a crease on their palm, which actually looks like the shell is sucking it in. The shell has then been very well sealed, a Takrut added and then it has been edged with silver, so there is no plastic case on this. This will result in the script wearing off in time and part of the pattern too but the patina this brings can be astonishing. One of the amazing things with these is the feeling when it is gently shook as the mercury moves slower and in a heavier fashion than we expect.
The Bia Gae itself is well sealed in metal and the reverse has a fine inscribed image of the 4 ears 5 eyes demon, which is what Kruba is famous for and some Lanna script. The case is old style too, which is what you would expect from 8 years ago. Care includes the usual offering of water, 3 incense and daily chanting of Namo Dtassa makes this an easy and highly efficient piece.
An ancient form of wicha for great protection from all harm.
A nice size at 1.375" in their fine silver cases and it comes with the original temple card. I just cleared a shop where they had old stock and there are more superb old pieces on the way.

A Superb Bia Kae Mercury Amulet by Kruba Boonlert in silver 2013
The imagery for this amulet is almost as good of the story of the amulet and the magic it carries for great fortune and serm baramee, a rise in status.
