  makkariphon

 

Thailand

Makkariphon is the name for the fruit of a mythical tree in Himaphan forest which, according to legend, fruits beautiful women, which are also known as nariphon (fig.), i.e. ‘women fruit’. These, what looks like dried human-shaped fruits, are on display in a temple museum in Phrae province, together with other oddities.
