    This is one of the remains of earthenware in the shape of straw shoes lying on a legged support, which looks like present day sandals. As a cup was put inside the straw shoes, you may fill it with liquids, etc. This is a kind of a container, which has been proved to be one of the grave goods buried in the ancient tombs of Silla.

    Earthenware in the shape of a duck(Busan Bokcheoncheon-dong Ancient Tombs No. 86)썸네일
    From the tombs in the eras of Ancient Gaya and Silla many items of earthenware in the shape of a duck or a bird have been excavated. On the back of the body is an opening looking like a cylinder connected to the tail side, through which opening you can pour a liquid and the likes. This earthenware matches well with Byeon Jin-Jo’s writing included in the SAMGUKJI WIJI DONGIJEON, which reads ‘The Gaya people not only wish that the deceased would fly in the sky but also have a belief that a bird would guide the soul of the deceased to the other world.’

    From the Bokcheoncheon-dong Tombs No. 22 a bronze branch bell with 7 bells dangled from a handle was excavated. A bell looking like counters has 4 holes in the shape of an oval, and as a small ball is in each hole, the bell rings when we swing it. As a piece of wood is inside the handle, it seems to have been used by putting it in a long handle.
