Wooden Hanuman with tongue made of gold in excellent condition

Luang Phor Soon of Wat SalaKhun is a renowned maker of Hanuman, the monkey god who is well-known for being courageous and able to strategise and having great fighting skill. This wooden Hanuman has a squatting posture, and a big head with a crown, intelligent eyes, four powerful limbs, a broad chest dressed in imperial suit. Luang Phor Soon must be very impressed with this particular piece and thereby specially ordered a golden tongue to be made and placed in its mouth. To perfect it, an extra yant was inscribed at the bottom.
