Sometimes, a simple, small amulet packs a punch and such is the case with this lovely Kuman Thong from Ajarn Suea of Chiang Mai. It consists of a figure of a Kuman giving a wai that has been carved from deer horn and then placed into a fine oil for Saneah attraction. of a naked Kuman that has been cut from a Maai Mayom tree that died a prai death in a graveyard. The figure has been scripted in Lanna and the base has a plug of a mixture of Prai Kuman and cemetery earths, in the traditional way.
The Kuman Thong is the golden child of Thai legend, the spirit son who is renowned in bringing wealth to his parent and for being highly protective. Also superb for influencing others and while there are different rules for care, they are a very rewarding amulet indeed. They need both care (with the owner being like a parent) and understanding as these can be rowdy little spirit kids but devotees of the KMT grow to adore them. Ancient Thai Magic.
Measures 2.5" and comes with Ajarn's card and kata. Nice work from Ajarn Suea, as always.

The Kuman Thong is the main child spirit that is worshipped within the practices of the Thai Occult, primarily for their ability to bring wealth and prosperity. It is also considered an act of Metta to care for the spirit of a child, to become its parent with all the responsibilities in caring for a ghost child.
