Rare Hariphunchai Period Terracotta Buddhist Votive Amulet Relic For Sale
RARE! Hariphunchai Period Terracotta Buddhist Votive Amulet Relic
Excavated near Lamphun Thailand
A MUST HAVE FOR ANY REAL COLLECTOR
This is a very rare find indeed, an acient Haripunchai period terracotta Buddhist votive amulet relic excavated near present day Lamphun Thailand which was then part of the Kingdom (Pali: Haripunjaya) was aMonkingdom in the north of presentThailandin the centuries before the Thais moved into the area. Its capital was atLamphun, which at the time was also called Hariphunchai. In 1292 the city was besieged and captured by theThaikingdom ofLanna.According to some ancientchronicles, the city was founded by a hermit namedSuthepin 661 AD, and the Mon ruler of Lopburisent his daughterJamadevito become its first queen. However, this date is now considered as too early, and the actual beginning is placed at around 750 AD. At that time, most of what is now central Thailand was under the rule of various Mon city states, known collectively as theDvaravatikingdom. Queen Jamadevi gave birth to twins, the older succeeding her as the ruler of Lamphun, and the younger becoming ruler of neighboringLampang.The chronicles say that theKhmerunsuccessfully besieged Hariphunchai several times during the 11th century. It is not clear if the chronicles describe actual or legendary events, but the other Dvaravati Mon kingdoms did in fact fall to the Khmers at this time. The early 13th century was a golden time for Hariphunchai, as the chronicles talk only about religious activities or constructing buildings, not about wars. Nevertheless, Hariphunchai was besieged in 1292 by the Thai kingMengrai, who incorporated it into hisLannathaikingdom. Buddhist amulets like this were commonly kept by Buddhist monks and believers in the dwellings or on their person for use in devotionals. To find a relic of this age in such fine condition is very rare. Don't let this unique opportunity pass you by... Buy It Now!
