Phra means “monk” or amulet, and Pidta means “closed eyes”. The image of this figure hiding its face with the palms would be, for some, a symbolic image of Maha Thera Sanghajay in the traditional Sammabart meditation.
By closing its eyes, it is not exposed to the evil surrounding it. Neither does one care about evil and its misdeeds. Therefore, one does not indulge in rumours, profanity, wrongdoing and any type of crime. We remain safe from the infamous acts and thus, protected from all sorts of apprehensions and misfortunes in consequence.
Phra Pidta is known for bringing fortune. We also know that it protects from evil.
The pictures were taken with artificial lighting.
Registered shipment with insurance and track & trace.
