Luang Por Derm, of Wat Nong Po was famous for his carved bone and ivory or wooden occult talismans and images, and the Singh Himapant Lion was amongst the most highly preferred of all, along with his Mitmor Spirit Knives. The Pantheon of amulets of Luang Por Derm can be placed into two main categories, namely those which were made as official edition at the temple, and those which were made by artisan devotees, who brought them to Luang Por Derm to bless. For this reason, we see so many hand carved pieces of fine miniature Buddhist imagery within the grand pantheon of amulets of Luang Por Derm, made from various sacred substances, ranging from Ivory, Metal, Bone, and Carved Sacred Wood.
