Luang Phaw To
Brass seated figure. This amulet, in the shape of a fat seated monk is called Luang Phaw To, the name of a monk. It is used for general protection. When the amulet is shaken, it makes a small sound. Amulets which are hollow inside and contained a small piece of metal so that they make a sound when shaken are called Phra Kring amulets because of the "kring kring" sound they make when shaken.
