Ancient Korean Wind Chime, Chosan Dynasty (1392-1910).

This dragon's head wind chime originally graced one of the corner rafters of a Buddhist temple or a royal hall. The dragon is one of the most popular images in Korean art and culture. An auspicious symbol, the dragon is a guardian figure that protects people and wards off evil spirts.

Wind chimes from this period are rare and extremely valuable. This piece belongs to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
