Bells and Gongs

The origin of bells is shrouded in the mist of antiquity. The sound of a bell can express great joy, sound a warning or danger, be used in time of dispair, in battle and in worship, stop the rain, keep evil spirits at bay, invoke curses and lift spells. Bells hold an honoured place in religous ceremony, they are symbols of paradise and the voice of god or the voice that speaks to the spirits and gods. They are found equally amongst all cultures of the world
