(Art) Bari Gongju by Lydia Ruyle


Princess Bari, is believed to be the ancestral mudang shaman and the patroness of all shamans in Korea. She was the seventh daughter of a king who abandoned her in infancy. Bari went on a mythic journey, crossing the border of the living and the dead and returning to bring her parents back to life, thus becoming the first mudang and mother of all. Bari, known as the goddess of nature and universe, guides the dead to the underworld.

    리디아 류일 교수의 한국 여신배너 6점 중의 하나, 바리공주 (바리데기). 마고신화순례에 참여하신 분들은 이 배너 걸이개를 직접 보실 수 있었답니다!

    2주간의 마고신화순례가 매우 흡족하고 넉넉하게 잘 마무리 되고 류일교수는 오늘 이시간 인천공항에서 미국으로 돌아가는 귀국비행을 기다리고 있습니다.
