In the house of haunted dolls, a creator bares her heart

Walking into Mama Ning’s Lair on the outskirts of Bangkok, one would be slightly disturbed by the body parts scattered around her house – a headless toddler, little limbs, bits of hair and tiny clothes packed into buckets.

The body parts? Don’t mind those, said Chutipat Siripoh, one of Mama’s acolytes. All those little parts would be put together to make a Look Thep or “Child God,” a doll powered by a living soul said to change people’s lives.

Chutipat, a woman in her twenties, had traveled three hours from Nakhon Sawan province that day for Mama Ning to add real human hair to her doll. It’s the home and workshop of Mananya Boonmee, a woman who went from selling purses to changing lives now called “Mama Ning.”

Three years ago, Mama Ning herself was driven by desperation for change in her life to create “Petch,” Thailand’s first Look Thep. With a little help from social media, the word discovers Look Thep.
