An extremely rare opportunity to admire and acquire this highly attractively carved exhibit of a Sacred Malaeng Phu Animist Charm in hand carved sacred treewood, with gold leaf, from the Great Olden Days Thai Lanna Guru Monk, Kroo Ba Chum, of Wat Wang Mui. The Malaeng Phu is an animist charm modelled in the form of the carpenter bee (Xylocopa latipes). The Malaeng Phu has been a highly revered Animist Talismanic Charm of the Lanna Folk for many Centuries, and remains so to this day.
The Malaeng Phu amulet an ancient form of Thai Lanna Sorcery, that is found to be made from various materials, including wood, jade, stone, clay, ivory, and in later years also cast metal. It is also seen that the actual carpenter bee itself is also sometimes used to embalm and cover with 'rak chart' red lacquer and gold leaf.
Some carved or cast metal Malaeng Phu amulets may also be filled with real ground powdered carpenter bees, as a form of magical sacred 'Muan Sarn' powder ingredient. The Malaeng Phu is derived from the Cultures around the Mueang La Legendary Region, which lies between Thailand, Burma and China, and is found present in the Tai Yai (Shan), and the Mong Hilltribes. The Malaeng Phu is seen to be a powerful protection against thieves and bandits, and also against demonic spirits, ghosts and dark sorcery.
The Malaeng Phu is seen worn by Lanna people to avoid danger, and often used by Military, and especially seen to be worn by Ladies of the Night who solicit their bodies, to protect against the risk of assault by a client. With the Tai Yai people, it is said that one should place a total of five Malaeng Phu amulets on the altar in the home or place of business, and to wear one Malaeng Phu on one's person for complete protection. The protection power is said to have an effect on the hearts of Bandits and Wrongdoers, turning their hearts around and converting their ill intentions into good intentions, which is of course a kind of Mercy Charm Enchantment.
In Myanmar (Burma), the Malaeng Phu is often seen in shops and other establishments placed on a Pan Kroo Bucha tray, which is believed to prevent robbers from breaking and entering the shop. This is said to work through the Malaeng Phu causing the robber to suffer a bout of compassion, and have a change of heart. Some carved or metal amulets are found to have 'Parot' Alchemical Mercurial substance inserted within them, and rattle when shaken. This is usually evident in those amulets which come from the Tai Yai People.
Another way the Malaeng Phu has seen to be used, is by the Tai Yai (Shan) People, when they build a new house; Four Malaeng Phu are placed one each on top of the four main pillars of the house foundation, to keep evil and bad luck away, and to bring prosperity, peace and happiness to the household. The Tai Yai may also hang a Malaeng Phu amulet over the entrance to their home or shop, to keep evil spirits at bay.
