soeypixels: thanks for helping me re-post it onto those specialised forums. uhm... i dunno what the back looks like. coz i'm afraid if i force open the ring, i cannot bend it back properly. sorry for sounding silly, but what is "KP" ?

alankpy: yes, mine is from thailand as well. was a gift from an uncle.

Sorry I'm totally clueless about this. Would appreciate some help :)

Anyway, the amulet in question looks like this

can show the real shape of it?

if the top is a round arch, chances its phra soomkor. but if your back is blank, i can only say its probably old, and cannot offer much ident. looks like an ayuthaya era votive tablet though

this mudra is a mudra of buddha touching the earth and calling earth as a witness against mara, of which after that phra mae toranee wrung her hair and washed mara and army away with water :p

phra soomkor.

buddha with one hand touching the ground, calling the earth as a witness, after which mae toranee washed mara and army away with water wrung from her hair.

i suppose the back is blank though. if it isnt, then you might have a better id match
Sometimes... the back is craved with some thai chantings i think. :dunno:
