Symbolism - Korean mystic shamanism – Costume: Hair and jewels
Type of Spiritual Experience
Hair is a symbol of spiritual energy, thus the more you have and the longer it is, whether left loose or made into a complex hair do, the more spiritually adept and advanced you are. A true adept never cuts his hair.
Jewels signify spiritual truths; or small gems of spiritual wisdom. They are a subset of the overall symbolism of Treasure. The precious stones in the garments of princesses, or in necklaces or bracelets, and haor adornments are thus symbols of spiritual insights obtained.
