Antique Bronze Ritual Bell with Trident Top
Size: 6 ¾ x 3 inches (27 x 7.5 cm). Weight: 10 ½ oz (301 grams)
This is a small antique bronze hand bell that was formerly used by a Shaman or Hindu priest on ritual and ceremonial occasions. The rung note is a sixth octave G# (1707Hz).
It features a large trident at the top and has a nice twisted handle. The trident is a three pronged spear and the weapon the Hindu God Shiva uses to fight off negativity.
This bell is in good condition for its age and would clean up if desired, although I prefer it as it is.
Originally belonging to a Shaman or Priest, antique bronze ritual hand bells of this type are few and far between, and are highly prized by religious practitioners, shaman, yogis, healers and sound therapists, as well as serious collectors.
When you buy, handle, and ring this antique ritual bell you can be confident that it is a genuine and revered holy instrument that has played an important part in countless sacred rituals and ceremonies for at least 100 years. It is a fascinating and beautiful object in its own right, with the look and feel of antiquity…but perhaps more importantly, when it is rung one can sense the spiritual energy, power and purpose with which it is imbued, and the present ineffably connects to the past.
Listen to this bell.
