For centuries, bells have been suspended in homes and temples in the Far East to ward off evil and attract good luck and prosperity. Bells have also been used to accompany worship. The Chinese were the first to control the pitch or note of a bell, making it possible for them to play tunes. The Encore Copper Bells are inspired by ancient Chinese bells and work in harmony with the wind to create gentle, soothing tones. Place these wind bells anywhere inside or out to protect you and to create peaceful bell songs.
