Man Wearing Phra Kruang

Man making alms bowl

The man was making an alms bowl

Shot at Pom Prap Sattru Phai District in Bangkok, Thailand.

The man in this photo was working in a studio built along a canal. He stripped to the waist while working. On his chest, a Phra Kruang, an amulet, was seen. I saw many Phra Kruang being sold during walking around the streets. Yet it was the first time to see a local person wearing the amulet in a direct fashion.

The man had a hammer in his hand and hit an arch-shaped metal board. It was a part of an alms bowl. This studio was an alms bowl factory. What he did seemed to be in an upper process. The metal board didn't take form yet. If I didn't know, it was difficult to know what he was making.
