To put it in the appropriate class, phra ngans belong to the divine being level of mountain spirits/demons and they are really yin in nature.

How did such an image evolve to the present red eye phra ngans?
As discussed previously, phra ngans are the divine beings of mountain spirits/demons and they are really yin in nature. What constitute mountain spirits/demons? There are numerous examples such as snakes, frogs, lizards, spiders, centipedes, scorpions and so on, generally animals/beings in the mountain that has actually gotten enough cultivation to become a devil （ 精 ） and from there, those with enough cultivation would be considered a divine being. Given that they are discovered in mountains along with cities, phra ngans refer to a class of cultivated beings.

To put it in the correct class, phra ngans belong to the divine being level of mountain spirits/demons and they are extremely yin in nature. The buchas of phra ngans dated back to the Ayuttaya period (1351 to 1767) where people call the phra ngans, without armour, as phra chai mongkol or victory buddha.

Throughout the damage of the Ayutthaya Dynasty by the Burmese, a great deal of Phra Ngans were kept in the belly of the huge Buddha. A few of the Buddha statues were destroyed, and the crown of these phra ngans were uneven as a result. It was a war ground and many solders passed away. Some said that the red color eyes was because of tin oxidation (not copper as prolonged oxidation of copper makes it black/green instead of red and thinking about that couple of hundred years had actually passed, the oxidation of copper need to end up being black but it was seen as black so the bulk of the material at that time should not be copper) while others said that it was due to the blood of the deceased soldiers. A basic analysis would reveal that the products for ayuttaya phra ngans contain little tin so the first rumor isn’t fix. That makes the blood of the soldiers on the phra ngan images more plausible. With a lot of buddha statues on a war ground that was covered with blood and with numerous deaths, it was natural that the location attracted beings that would reside in the statues as it was rumored that the statues offered to the soldiers weren’t blessed.

Phra Ngang was a friend and disciple of the Buddha who during his life had a big problem to meditate in peace because it was so beautiful that many women came to offer him although he was a monk. He then engaged in solitary meditation practice and wished to lose his beauty so that he could practice the Dharma for the good of all sentient beings and then changed into a kind of hideous dwarf with red eyes and big ears. Beings throughout his life in this weird form, he was teaching the Dharma to the poor in the villages, and at his death, he vowed to help those who wear his effigy.
Phra Ngang would be the ghost of a great Warrior, dead in battle protecting his family and determined to protect all those who pray him. He would thus have reached the level of a Deva and could manifest himself through his images (statues and amulets)
Phra Ngang amulets were very primitive Buddha amulets (Phra Chai), worn by some fighters during the battles of Ayuthaya period. After the battles, the monk would come, collect the bodies and find those amulets, often with their top bent and with their eyes caked in blood. It was decided to transfer the spirit of those dead warriors into the amulets so that they could amend for their sin and accumulate merits by helping the wearer of the amulet for a period of time.
All master’s Phra Ngang is made with ashes and soil of sacred mountains of northern Thailand and Cambodia.
