Q about Red Khmer love magic.

Post by RikuPontinen888 »

Any of you Khmer experts can tell me about these "flags". Purposes, use, anything.
Did Google research : "Red Khmer love magic."

I did found these two 2017 from the two different abandoned "Ghost" houses.
One with Female was on the wall, easy to reach.
But apron type of with pockets was hidden in the attick of big spirit house, without muscle up it would be still there. I consider myself lucky.

Female one has cool detail. It is missing right eye but does have a eye on the forehead where 3rd eye is.

Been watching these 2years & been thinking. :chin:
Any info, i would love to hear.

They're lucky charms of sorts. Almost every house in the countryside has one, and many in the city as well. Usually used after building a new house, sort of like a guardian.

My missus asked me to go to the local monk for one.

He made one and said I'd be rich. Conning tw**

They're called a Pha Yant in Thai. Similar to the magic tattoos of the region called Sak Yant. People get them for help in acquiring wealth, protection, etc. Al l the local businesses usually have them, as well.
