The villagers in northeast Thailand found a termite mound that they insist on looks exactly like Thailand’s auspicious boy spirit.
The mound was discovered yesterday in the middle of the jungle surrounding the Ban Khok Klan community in Surin Province and quickly drew attention to its resemblance to Ai Khai, a centuries-old spirt who drew thousands to a temple in the south.
