Japan, an 18th/19th century monumental temple meditation bell "rin" , hand hammered bronze with "Kanji inscription of cardinal directions" around rim , 18” high and 23” diameter, makes a most pleasing resonating sound. Wonderful musical garden accent or indoor fine art piece. Very good condition for its great age. It is accompanied by a later cushion, & leather striker.

The word Buddha means to awaken, and so the sound of Japanese temple bells is central to Buddhist practices. The enchanting sound of these temple instruments is reverberating and unending and would likely be used for morning and evening sutra chanting services at the temple. This is the largest size we have seen in the marketplace in many years. This fine work of art represents an excellent chance to own a magnificent antique instrument at a surprisingly reasonable price. Guaranteed authentic. From an old American private collection. Call for further details and free shipping/delivery during month of April, 802-279-7601.
