These brown clay Nang Kwak rectangle amulets feature Nang Kwak in her typical pose – seated with legs underneath her and extending her hand out to call in customers to the business of the person wearing the amulet.

On the reverse side is Ajahn Jumnien’s Magic Spiral trademark design. This signifies the amulet was made at his Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi, Thailand. In Thai, it’s “Wat Tham Seua” – Temple Cave Tiger.

Nang Kwak, also known as Nang Gwak or Nang Kruan, is a revered figure in Thai and other Southeast Asian Buddhist cultures. She is often depicted as a woman sitting with one hand raised in a welcoming gesture, symbolizing prosperity and good fortune.

Nang Kwak is a very prominent figure in Thailand, where she is considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity. She is typically placed near the entrance of shops and businesses, with her hand outstretched as if beckoning customers to enter. The belief is that her presence will attract customers and bring success to the establishment.

While Nang Kwak is primarily associated with Thai Buddhism, her veneration extends to other Theravada Buddhist countries in Southeast Asia, such as Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar. In these countries, she may be known by different names but is similarly revered for her association with prosperity and abundance.

The origins of Nang Kwak’s status as a respected Buddhist figure are not entirely clear. Some believe that her depiction may have originated from Hindu goddesses or folk deities who were associated with wealth and prosperity. Over time, she became assimilated into Buddhist culture, where her symbolism aligned with Buddhist values of generosity and merit-making.

Nang Kwak’s popularity and reverence grew over time through cultural practices and beliefs passed down through generations. As Thai society evolved, her image became ingrained in the fabric of daily life, with people seeking her blessings for prosperity in their businesses and personal lives. Today, Nang Kwak remains an iconic figure in Thai Buddhist culture, symbolizing the aspirations for success and abundance.
