Small Thai Somdej Buddhist amulet plaque, 3.8cm


Small Thai Somdej Buddhist amulet plaque, 3.8cm.

Phra Somdej (พระสมเด็จ) amulets are among the most sought after amongst amulet collectors. The rarest of these are worth a great deal of money amongst collectors. They depict a simple Buddha image of the seated Buddha atop a three-tiered throne.

Amulets like these are cast in moulds. They can contain dirt from a temple grounds or even parts of a monk's robe.

This is a much more modern version of a votive Somdej tablet - made recently. Clay. 3.8cm x 2.3cm.
