Old Khun Paen Prai Amulets by Luang Phor Taab with his Green See Pung - last 2
I managed to buy 7 of these old Khun Paen by this legendary old monk from Ajarn Perm Rung's collection so we know they are good. The thing is though that I have had these before and that back is never from any other amulet, it is a classic design.
The Green See Pung of Luang Phor Taab is legendary and I get it whenever I see an affordable piece as it is akin to something from another planet. Luang Phor Taab only made this product towards the end of his long life, which was predominantly spent as a monk, and he took a decade to collect the items he wanted to make a see pung from and kept these items on his shrine to build their power through daily blessings. When he finally released it to the public, word of its efficiency in bringing good fortune spread like wildfire and in no time he has people travelling from Bangkok to get some from him, which was quite a feat around 50 years ago, especially to the wilds of NE Thailand.
The funny thing was that anyone who came to the temple wanting this product was kept waiting, sometimes for days as he would not just sell it to anyone. There are quite a few stories of Luang Phor refusing the requests of very important people unless they spent a few days in his temple, which sounds quite funny. The huge demand for this product was because of its ability to bring wealth, at which it is legendary.
The effect of the See Pung being present is incredible, giving any amulet he made 'an other world' feeling and in many ways it is as Thailand 50 years ago is a very different place to what it is now. He often also added a ball of this to the front of other amulets he made and the range of his works is quite large, but finding them is not easy. I have two of these left and they come in a fine silver case. The green see pung is mixed into the black earth matrix and I will send on a fine black cord, on which they look beautiful.
A cute size at 1.75" and I have managed to find his original kata.
A magical relic of a bygone age.

THE LAST Old Khun Paen Amulets by Luang Phor Taab with his Green See Pung
This is an early form of prai that became famous for its efficiency in bringing wealth and good fortune to the people lucky enough to own it. Other items from that time include the works of LP Timm, who used a similar source of prai because child prai is famous for its work in bringing money.
