A tribute to the “Goryeo, the Glory of Korea” exhibition, this beautiful gold-plated brooch has been designed in a turtle motif.
This brooch is unique because it utilizes magnets to stay put. No need to pin and unpin it and damage the material of your attire, but simply use the magnets included to easily move positions.
Comes in a box with a cloth pouch and 2 magnets.
Traditionally in Korea, the turtle symbolizes longevity and fortune-telling abilities. (It is one of the “shipjangseng” or 10 symbols of longevity.)
While the dragon was considered the ruler of all animals, the turtle ruled over the insects. Because turtles live longer than other animals, they symbolize longevity. People believed that turtles had the power to predict the future. Fortune tellers used the shape of a turtle’s shell to forecast the future. Turtle images often form the base of steles or monuments to famous people, especially Buddhist monks.
