Phra Somdej Wat Rakang is the creation of Phra Sangkarach Somdej Luang Phor Toh Promrangsi of Wat Rakang Temple. Luang Phor Toh  is the most famous of all the Sangkarach monks.

(Phra Sangkarach means the head monk of the Royal Palace by Royal decree and the head of all the monks in Thailand).

Somdej Wat Rakang is perhaps the most valued and rare of all Amulets in Thailand’s amulet world. There are many different editions and two main sizes (Pim Yai and Pim Lek). Each of these two “Pim”, when made, would use up to 6 different stamping molds, meaning that whether a Pim Yai or a Pim Lek, there would be several variations on the edition, making it difficult for experts to recognise all of them. Only total fanatics of the Somdej Wat Rakang amulet will know how to recognize which edition and also which of the 6 stamp molds were used in a particular amulet’s making. Apart from this, the mixture used in the amulet varies too and gave different patterns and textures when dried. The backs of the amulets are also different depending on where they were laid out to dry.

One of the rarest patterns on the back is one with thin black lines scratched into it horizontally, which is from having been laid on a blackboard to dry. Some were laid on wood, some on stone. Somdej Luang Phor Toh, the creator of these amulets was an expert in making the mixture and also in using temperature and humidity to achieve distortions in the surface of the amulet which resulted in them becoming even more beautiful than if they didn’t receive any changes from the environment and atmosphere! For example, he used heat as an element to cause the drying process to be over accelerated, causing cracks to appear in the amulet.

One of the trademarks of his amulet mixture was to mix “Kluay nam Wa” (a type of banana” into the mixture just before pressing them with the mold presses. This gave both a wonderful smoothness to the amulet once it was dried as well as a definitive texture to the appearance of the “Nuea”

(Nuea means “meat” – meaning the cement paste used in the amulet).

Upon closer examination with a magnifying glass, you will be able to see little black dots in the mixture, which comes from the seeds in the banana. The banana flesh will also make the mixture less smooth and more grainy resulting in little cracks and crevices in the surface once dried.

(although this effect is also due to humidity and change in temperature achieved by moving the amulets being dried from one room or place to another before the drying process was completed.)
