Kumanthong / Kuman Thong. Phantom Ghost. Religious Artifact. Human Ashes. Genuine. Authentic. 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. Kuman means young boy. Thong means golden.
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. The final process was covering the Kuman Thong in gold leaf.
This statue was not “prepared” in this necromantic way. However, it is an effigy, it is old, it has gold leaf/foil on parts, and it was constructed from real ashes of human reesotericstuff.coms . . .and perhaps some cemetery soil. I acquired it from a spiritual person in Mae Hong Son, located in one of the northern provinces of Thailand.
This is the first time I have found a Kuman Thong of this size. With the base surrounded with skulls, this one is sure to bring you mounds of good luck and fortune.
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.
