Clay Kuman Thong Kumanthong Religious Artifact. Amulet. Cemetery Soil and Ashes. Authentic. Pong District. Thailand.
Kuman Thong is an effigy or statue that is revered in Thailand by Animists (folks who believe that natural physical entities – including animals and plants – possess a spiritual essence, IF given the proper respect). If so, statues such as this bring good luck and fortune to its owner.
This is a religious piece that is not related to Buddhism but is pure Saiyasart or – in some people’s eyes – occultism.
Original Kuman Thong statues were made from babies who died of violent circumstances or from an unnatural death. It is less common now – not to mention illegal – especially when child fat was used as the consecrated oil.
The Golden Baby Boy – the translation of Kuman Thong – history comes from children who died before born. The baby was surgically removed from the womb and “prepared”. I am not going into the detail but you can contact me for more information.
This statue was not “prepared” in this necromantic way. However, it is an effigy and it is old. I was told that it had been consecrated which means it was constructed with cemetery soil with a mix of sacred ashes. It was acquired from a village along the Yom River in the Pong District, Phayao Province in north-central Thailand.
For the very Serious Collector. I have a number of glass domes and cases for sale. If interested in acquiring one for this piece, just contact me.
This item has sold. Thanks M.H. !
