  Jatukam-Ramathep amulet

 

Thailand

The front side of the Jatukam-Ramathep amulet shows the god Tao Ramathep surrounded by the animals of the Chinese zodiac, a reference to the coat of arms of Nakhon Sri Thammarat (fig.) and by eight figures that represent the demon-god Rahu.

 

The back side of the Jatukam-Ramathep amulet shows a relief with some ancient yan signs that have a religious or animist protective purpose.
