Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Rue Sri was an old hermit who wore a tiger cloth and would craft Buddhas in one of Thailand’s Chedis or stupas.  His carved image is thought to hold the spirit of him.

This bear tooth was crafted by LP Nok of Wat Sanggasee, Samutsakorn province, a temple abbot who was born in B.E. 2392 (Thai Buddhist) or in 1849.

This bear tooth was carved in the early 1900s.  Many of these carvings were made into amulets and used as an initial donation to temple membership or just to wear as a talisman.
