Rare shaman bell used by a Dao Gong Taoist Priest for calling spirits from the Yao/Mein ethnic group in China/Vietnam. Nice old piece circa late 19th CE/early 20th CE. See pg 207, plate 570 Jess Pourett’s: The Yao for reference. The tooth is from a bear (probably lower incisor). Bell H: 4.5cm/1.8in and tooth L: 6cm/2.3in
