Mug designed by the Gyeongju National Museum in the motif of the geumje (gold waist belt) found in the Geumgwanchong Tomb dating back to the Silla Kingdom. Available in 3 different colors. Beautiful gift for any museum or Asian history lover.
Belt ornaments of Silla consisted of two parts: one part for decorating the surface of a belt, and the other part for hanging ornaments from the belt. The rectangular surface decoration is lavishly adorned with heart-shaped attachments, tiny metal flakes, and intricate openwork of three-leaf designs originating from vine designs. Many other items were typically hung from this ornament, including bottles of medicine or perfume to ward off disease, metal fish or dragon pendants symbolizing abundance and immortality, curved jade pieces, and whetstone caps.
