3. Shaman's bells (8 pictures, 1.91 MB, last modified 2010-04-20, 10:03:53)
bells representing old religious traditions In Mongolia and much of Siberia there are two forms of shaman, the white and the black. This is nothing to do with good or evil, it simply differentiates the different roles each type take in ceremonies and shamanic practice. The bell started it's life as a Buddhist bell, which many shamans bells are, but during it's history the vajra top of the bell has been removed an a metal loop added, to which part of an offering scarf (khadak) has been tied to form a loop for the shaman to put around their wrist while it is being played. This bell does not currently have a clapper, but the hole underneath the bell to fix one, is still there, and it would be a very easy job to tie a new clapper on. The easiest way to do this would be to tie a small nut (from a nut and bolt) or some other small piece of metal on a cord. It would take a matter of moments to do. The bell is a beautiful example of an old shamans bell and would be perfect for shamanic practice
