This exceptional Kuman Thong amulet was released around 4 years ago by Ajarn Tay of Chiang Mai, one of the regions' finest makers of prai items. It consists of a fine enamle panel that shows the Kuman with bags of money with an edging of fine Lanna script but it is the bag that is wonderful. The rear has a skull, 4 gems for love, 4 Takrut, a coin for good fortunes, a sheet of gold leaf over the matrix and finally, a triangle of child's Panneng. This is one hell of an amulet from a Master of the art who is no longer producing Prai items.
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 just under 2.25" and comes with Ajarn's card and kata.
A Stunning Old Issue Kuman Thong Prai Amulet by Ajarn Tay
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.
