Phor-Po-Ror with Thai Royal Temple emblem 2500 B.E. FRONT VIEW (103k Jpeg)
It was a produce of Wat Boworrniweitch, Bangkok REAR SECTION VIEW (100k Jpeg)
The Buddha Image with a Thai Royal emblem is sounded something like "Yi-Sip-Har (25) Sadawat/Sattawas" but recently I have found a more accurate reference where it is sounded like Phor Po Ror 2500 B.E. Edition from Wat Boworniwetch, Bangkok.. I roughly know the meaning and origin. It is aged around 49 years old, it was a gift from Uncle Wichien when I shifted in my New OFFICE. I brought my earlier 18 years old Nang Kwak along from downstairs old office with some other gifts (amulets) from friends. One of the old Nang Kwak is shown below. The Phra Tath (Buddha sacred Relics) is from my house (which has multiplying from 5 pieces to 28 now; Uncle gave me another set of five first generation (his) in vibrant of colours, I installed them at home and move the previous cherished units to office). The old Nang Kwak was from a pretty Thai lady Miss Mongkolwan. G. She was disposing some excellent Buddha images/statues and amulets on behalf of her friend's father (those for my China friends mentioned in Wichien's Soomdej page 7 were from her.). Note: some background on 25 Sadawat/Sattawas Phra Leela
During a recent trip to Chiangmai in 2007. I was trying to locate another Buddha image for a friend in China for the new house. Weerapong and I went to the large amulet market and instantly we both were caught with this 7" Buddha image. The seller was quite persistent in price and after long session of negotiation, I think the seller could have known it was also a gem in his disposable collections at the stall. Based on theunique color of bronze cast metal and the shape of the mold, estimated it was approx. than 200 years old. True enough, we took Buddha image and asked for some Myanmar old folks at Chiangmai as well as another six Burmese friends of our friend Tut, none of them can recognized the old scripts inscribed at the base of this Buddha. But they told us it was a script of ancient Burmese era. A friend later told me may be that was Shan Scripts, or Tai Yai or Tai Long, used in Northern Eastern region of Myanmar today (or Burma during the old times). Enjoy.
Shown is a very old age Nang Kwak image, as reflects by the hairstyle which is typically a pre-RAMA I era. Thai believes every Nang Kwak supposes has a name on her own. This Nang Kwak has a name too, as "Soomporn" - this is also a very very old Thai name for lady. It is HEAVY, all metal construction. Some Thai believes she like things every lady likes, such as perfume and my Thai lady friend (Datin Pratinya) even suggested to me I should serve her with a cherry-red syrub drinks such as F&N FANTA canned drink, as this is her favorite..Errr....
