Technological advances of the past few decades have lead to the development of modern amulets and talismans in Indonesia. The majority of modern amulets are machine made and produced on large scale. Although modernist influences have pervaded most forms of amulet design, production and consecration, yet the underlying meaning and function essentially remained intact, for contemporary mystical objects still follow the basic guidelines of ancient tradition. However, traditionally handmade and individually blessed amulets have become somewhat of a rarity in recent times.
Indeed, only very few masters still pro-actively practice traditional manufacturing skills with hand-made tools today. Besides the use of primitive technology, there are even fewer masters who possess the required metaphysical knowledge and wisdom in order to empower mystical objects like amulets and talismans. Furthermore, due to the extreme rarity of genuine animal materials – Javan deerskin in particular – this amulet can be considered a precious collector’s item of immense sacred value.
The rear face of the premium Javan deerskin amulet has been inscribed with various Islamic mystical spells of mercy and supremacy. As a result of the magical qualities imbued within the deerskin amulet, one will be received by others with hospitality, kindness and compassion, as well as being treated with respect and dignity. For this reason, one will be able to skillfully convince others to listen to what one has to say, so that people are always willing to follow his or her instructions. Needless to say, the endowed mystical properties are especially useful in regard to business and commerce, as well as in court to help solving legal matters.
