Jenglot

Introduction

In Indonesia, jenglot is a type of small creature that’s related to mythology and culture. Usually, these are made from materials that are cheap. However, if they are made from animal fetuses, then they can be purchased for thousands of ringgit and is believed to be much more powerful.

Physical Traits

The jenglot is a type of small creature that’s usually about 12 centimeters long. It has long nails and hair that grows unevenly and stiff in the legs and feet. It also has long claws and a pair of vampire-like teeth on its toes and fingers. Nowadays, this doll comes in a black gift box.

Family

According to folklore, the keepers of the jenglot feed their creature either human blood or goat blood. The traditional belief is that the nutrients found in the blood will be able to nourish the creature through its own body.

Powers and Abilities

Although the doll doesn’t do much, it’s believed that after being imbued with black magic, it can protect its master or perform other actions for good luck.

Modern Day Influence

The various exhibitions about the jenglot have been held in Indonesia. Most of these are held on the islands of Sumatra and Java. The keepers of these creatures usually bring their specimens to different areas in the country to display them for money. Some believe that these are just man-made toys that have no supernatural powers.
