Peony Cloisonné Health Balls
$18.00
Smithsonian Exclusive Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

Thought to have been introduced during the Ming dynasty (1368 – 1644), health balls (Bao Ding) like these Peony Cloisonné Health Balls, are an important tool in Chinese medicine. The balls are placed next to each other in the palm of one hand, where they are continuously rotated with finger movements. The constant switching of positions while keeping the balls in contact with each other is believed to improve dexterity, help with circulation, and be therapeutic for those with arthritis. Most health balls are made of polished metal. This cloisonné set features peony motifs, which in Chinese culture symbolize honor and wealth. Each set is presented in a silk box. Brass with enamel coating. Set of 2.
