Rare Antique and Genuine Traditional Korean Shaman's Bells (Muryoeng) used in shaman rituals for Summoning Good Spirits and Repelling Bad Spirits. You often see these bells depicted in antique paintings of Korean shamans. These shaman's bells that we offer here are not to be confused with the modern reproductions that you see for sale on eBay. These are genuine shaman implements with old workmanship and a beautiful patina from many years of traditional use a very long time ago. They are rare because they are normally buried or destroyed when the shaman dies. For a similar example of antique Korean shaman's bells bells, please see page 223 of The Collection of the National Folk Museum of Korea, published in 2012. 8 inches, 20.25 cm.
