The use of a copper vessel as a magic and a medical aid in South Indian Folkmedicine is described. The authors discuss its relation to the neglected external treatments of Siddha Medicine and the use of cupping glasses in West Germany. With this article they want to rise the interest in a comparative study of the different medical systems and to emphasize the use of the external treatments in Siddha Medicine, which are rarely practiced today.
