KIAK-KIAK

South-East Asian Destruction God

The Snoozing God of Gods

He has gone to sleep for six thousand years. When he wakes up, the end of the world will come.

What we don’t know is when he went to sleep. He has dozed his way out of our references and internet searches reveal only Malaysian black ants and a number of radio stations.

According to dear old Brewer’s Dictionary, KIAK-KIAK is idolized in Bago (formerly Pegu) in Myanmar/Burma. Which is famous for its huge sleeping Buddha statue, the Shwethalyaung Buddha. Coincidence? We will have to sleep on it.
