Woman thanks statue with 300 pig heads

A woman offered 300 severed pig heads on platters to a Buddha statue in western Bangkok yesterday to mark the Year of Goat and thank it for spiritual help with a defaulted loan.

Sombat Lekpiam, 59, a Rachaburi fruit merchant, traveled with her family to Wat Bang Phra in Nakhon Pathom with two pickup trucks loaded with pig heads to make good on a promise she made to the statue six years ago.

At that time she had promised the Buddha image she would present it the 300 heads if a debtor would return THB2 million to her.

After the ceremony, Sombat donated the pig heads to several temples, Thairath reported.
