20th century - Philippines - non-CITES species

Specimen: Mythical Tyanak Mummified Head
Object: with "Night Fairy" - in memorial casket
Origin: Philippines
CITES relevancy: non-CITES species
Condition: Preserved

The Tiyanak is a creature born from the stories of Philippine mythology that has the appearance of a newborn baby. It is said that this creature cries in the forest to lure unwary visitors with his little flying fairy. Once the victim tracks the sound, he will find the toddler lying on the ground alone and crying. So he will hold him and embrace him, but the Tiyanak will revert to his true form and eats the traveller’s head. It’s also told that the Tiyanak finds pleasure in carrying out road travellers or kidnapping children. One day he was captured and mummified along with his diabolic fairy.
Legend or fact? We will never know.

Shipping with DHL.

    Lo stesso oggetto su e-bay è in vendita a 36,00 Euro. La descrizione non accennava al fatto che fosse una replica in resina: faceva pensare ad un pezzo unico. Molto delusa.

    Oggi in rete si trovano repliche e copie di qualsiasi oggetto che tendono a trarre in inganno chi non è esperto del settore ed attento osservatore. I miei feedback testimoniano l assoluta veridicità di quanto scritto e l autenticità del pezzo proposto in vendita e visionato da un esperto e senza nessuna valutazione quindi il prezzo finale è stato scelto da lei in vendita senza riserva e non paragonabile ad un qualsiasi e ridicola imitazione poichè raro e di elevata fattura artistica e in più non mi sembra carino nominare il nome di un altra piattaforma su Catawiki dove sono in vendita solo oggetti particolari, il teschio è normale che sia una replica, perchè è assolutamente impossibile vendere un cranio umano
