Phra Kru

Thai amulets often classified as Phra Kru, encompassing both votive tablets and a number of contemporary antique amulets (over 50 years)
In general many serious collectors that have moved beyond modern day love charms and talismans take a keen interest in this group, often specialising in a particular temple, region or era.
1. Votive Tablets
Small Buddhist icons that often depict the life of Buddha. These tablets are of historical importance as they reflect art, culture and religious belief throughout Thai history. They first appeared during the Kushana dynasty of India gaining popularity during the 4th century onwards.
Usually made of baked clay by a press mould technique and created during the last thousand years in accordance with the Buddhist practice of making merit or objects of consecration.
Votive tablets are generally discovered in secret relic chambers within the base of stupa (commonly referred to as cells of kru), the most hallowed areas of temple compounds or caves that were used for seclusion and meditation.
2. Antique Amulets
Contemporary amulets created during the last 200 years but in general amulets over 50 years old that have been stored in cells or kru.
There are numerous ways to differentiate between the various votive tablets and amulets. In general this usually is by age, religious belief, iconography or art style and is loosely based on the following
1. Dvaravati style (6th - 11th century) They show an influence of the Indian Gupta style, post-Gupta and Pala styles. The tablets were usually made from baked clay and inscribed the verse “ye dhamma”.
2. Srivijaya style (8th – 13th centuries) Most Srivijaya tablets were made from unbaked clay and were in the Mahayana tradition. When donated on behalf of those who died, the ashes of the deceased were mixed with earth and molded into images of the Buddha.
3. Haripunjaya style (9th – 13th centuries) The art style is comparable with the Pala Indian style (11th century) and Angkor Wat - Bayon style of Khmer art (12th - 13th centuries).
4. Khmer or Lopburi style (11th – 13th centuries) usually show numerous Buddha images or Buddha images with Bodhisattvas in a row in the Mahayana tradition.
5. Sukhothai Style - found in both Sukhothai and nearby cities, they have been given a variety of names depending on the place of origin and appearance.
6. U-thongAyutthaya style - various votive tablets made in this period show images of a style derived from various sources such as Dvaravati, Lopburi and Sukhothai art. Later, Ayutthayan votive tablets developed into a single image that was the shape of the tablet itself.
7. Rattanakosin style - The beginning of this period was influenced by Ayutthaya style art and votive tablets mostly found in the crypt of various chedi.
