Featuring another rare collection of mine - Phor Than Kong's Pidnar Phakhawan, this superb pidta was believed to be made around BE 2480. It's hard to determine the real date / year of when this pidnar bhakhawan was made as there's official documentation.
i] Most of the PIDTA figures are PIDNAR because of their physical characteristics - most of them are actually covering their FACES and not their EYES.
ii] According to Phor Mor Keaw, our late Than Kong used to name / call all of his PIDNAR as BHAKHAWAN or PIDNAR BHAKHAWAN.
iii] My recent achan ( still alive one ), Phor Mor Chau Narn ( 85 years old ) provided the same infos by saying that our Phor Than Kong called his PHRA PIDTA as PHRA PIDNAR BHAKHAWAM or just BHAKHAWAM.
iv] What happen If the Buddha is covering his EARS ? or MOUTH ? Should we or shouldn't we called them as PHRA PIDHU or PHRA PIDPAKH ?
There's an uncle from Johor offered me RM20K for this pidnar - 'exchanging hand cost'. He used to offer me RM18K before. Besides him i just turned down an offered of RM25K - RM30K from the popular Thai amulets store in Penang - K****** V*******. Just 2 months before the grand sales of Phor Than Kong's Amulets Collection. During the sales, I saw the same pidnar ( same phim with 70% of clear lotus srcipt ) was sold at RM48K .
