Amulets
#1
In South East Asia, Buddhist amulets are very popular among Buddhists and non Buddhists for protection against evil spirits and black magic. 
Most of the amulets are made in the image of Buddha, monks and other deities. The amulets are consecrated for months before they are released to the devotees and the public. Once the amulets are consecrated, they will become "alive" or I should put it they are energized. 

My collection of Thai amulets.

They are made of clay.

This is Tibetan Yamantaka, a wrathful protector. This amulet is made of herbs.

This is a Tibetan Phurba, a powerful tool used by the shamans against evil spirit. This amulet is made of copper.
This phurba belongs to my wife. Ever since she wore this, the spirits in her office stopped harassing her. All the usual noises in the office, in the washroom stopped. And she never experienced being pinned down when she took a nap in the office.

This is a keris, a Malay dagger. This is made of wood. Special trees are selected to make amulets and talisman. These trees are known to have special energy. My friend kept one in his daughter's car. 2 years ago his daughter was involved in a very bad accident. Her car was totally smashed up but she escaped with only minor scratches. My friend believed the blessed dagger had saved her daughter. There are many stories in my country that amulets had saved the lives of the wearers from accidents. One of my friends experienced it too. She showed me the pic of the wreckage. I couldn't believe it she was still alive. She suffered minor injury. She said she saw red and white light shielding her before she hit into a container truck. She was wearing a Thai amulet at that time.

Where's the picture of the keris? And what kind of wood it made of? I'd like to see it.

It's not just the Malay that has keris, but Indonesia too. There're 2 types of keris that widely popular in Indonesia; Sundanese style, and Javanese style.

Oops, sorry. I think I didn't post the pic. Here is the Keris. I can't remember the name of the wood.

I can't tell what type of wood it is from the picture, either. Probably just as well as it's probably an Asian wood that I'm not familiar with.

Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.
