During a recent trip to Bangkok, a close business associate of mine shown me a framed collection of Amulets. According to him, it was a birthday gift given to him by some Army staffs dating back approx. 20+ years ago. The protective glass was broken when he tried to move the setup to my hotel for shooting. I have spent a few hours detaching the locking screws to set up the entire frame for a clearly view. It was truly a fascinating piece of artwork by itself. The entire composition was makeup of not less than 12 different types of high quality Buddhist images (includes few units of 4th version of Wat Paknam, Soomdej & Kes-chai-yoh images that surround the 4 corners of the frame plus some unverified but well preserved tablets. I was granted permission to remove each of them for the purpose of shooting but I realized that all of them have been stuck & glued tightly with the dried liquor. So I have to shot the images as they are in the frame. However, I waited patiently till the next morning when the sun light was more favorable, place it next to the window where the sunlight projects a warmer tone (besides, early light rays from the side can reveal their textures more distinctively. A few angles were selected during the session in order to show all the minute details.

N O T E : Each of the thumbnail(s) shown on this page leads to an explosive view(s) in a new browser window. Please bear with the SLOW download time - as this graphic intensive section (each larger view (Jpeg image) may range from a demanding 150k to 350k - which means they may require a faster Internet connection to enjoy browsing. Some of the images shown may have some waxy religious "lubricants" on their surface, they were applied prior to the shooting sessions.
