Phallic talismans, or amulets, known in Thailand as ‘palad khik’, have a long tradition as lucky charms and for redirecting malevolent forces. Worn on a string or belt at the waist, off-center, or carried in the pocket by men and boys they are thought to both attract and absorb any magical malevolence intended for the real genitals.

  • Two Small Love Effigies & Amulet

    These two diminutive figures are used in rituals summoning love and were made at Wat Tung Man Dtai, Lampang, home of a venerated monk, as shown on included amulet. The figures are made of cloth and threads and appear to have been coated in lacquer and maybe a wax-like material. They are supposed to represent male and female figures. These are unusual pieces, not often found.

  • Palad Khik

    Of beautifully carved soft grey green stone, this diminutive palad khik is unusual and has some nice details: the phallus has an animal with a long phallic tail gripping one end; the animal is covered with spirals and has a scale-like pattern on its legs; the feet have five toes and a spiral, and the hands have five fingers; it is probably a monkey, tho the face is almost cat-like. Three inscriptions are carved as well. This could be worn or carried easily or it would be a lovely addition to a collection. (Please note that only 1 piece is available- composite photo is to show the four sides)

  • Palad Khik

    Of carved horn in the shape of a tiger-topped phallus, this elegant palad khik fits perfectly in the hand as a talisman. It has carved inscriptions on the sides for power. We don’t often see interesting horn pieces like this one. It is probably not old as the inscriptions are still crisp.

  • Palad Khik ‘Phra Ngan’

    Made of dark, cast brass, this small, modern palad khik depicts a strange little elfin figure without legs, leaning back on its elbows, but with an oversized phallus. This figure is known as ‘Phra Ngan’ and is an aberration originating from mis-cast Buddha images made during the wars in the Ayutthaya period. It is considered an effective provider of luck in a short period when used properly. Its horn-like hat forms a ring for wearing on a chain or cord.
