This bell offers a soothing sound and is inspired by ancient Chinese bells.
This bell features colorful blue stone accents and round reddish-brown wood bead clappers. The natural beauty of its rust finish warms up the steel elements with an earthy, brown color and an interesting, weathered texture.
Throughout the ages bells have been used to accompany dance, provide comfort and warn of possible danger. Some of the first to control pitch or note of a bell were the Chinese, making it possible for them to play tunes. Soon bells were being used to accompany worship. In Buddhist temples bells were rang 108 times, once for each of the 108 worldly desires.
Bells have become very important in the East and often decorated with significant symbols. Tuned bells have been suspended in homes and temples for centuries to ward off evil and attract good luck and prosperity. Woodstock Temple Bells are inspired by these ancient bells and work in harmony with the wind to create gentle, soothing tones.
