The Palad Khik, a phallic representation of Shiva, is also an animist symbol of fertility.
It can be made of wood, metal, bone, horn or ivory. These are created by specialised monks. The engraving of sacred inscriptions is an important ritual and may take several days.
These amulets must be reinforced by the repetition of incantations, which the Thais name “Kata Bucha”.

Monkey 猴子 : This is the ninth sign of the Zodiac.
In China, the monkey is considered as a subtle and clever being, hiding behind false stupidity, in order to better betray its enemies.
In Japan, the monkey is synonymous of wisdom and happiness, the 3 monkeys of the Toshogu à Nikko Temple (on the picture), the Mizaru (blind), the Kikazaru (deaf) and the Iwazaru (mute) illustrate the Buddhist principle: “If we see nothing wrong, hear nothing wrong, say nothing wrong, nothing bad can happen to us”.
In Tibet, it represents unconsciousness and wandering, paradoxically, it is also considered as a good travel companion, as well as the son of Heaven and Earth.
In India, Hanuman, the monkey-god, represents strength, intelligence, fecundity and power.
