Ritual bell, anonymous, after -482

founding, h 58.5cm × w 42cm × d 34.5cm × w 44kg More details

This bell once formed part of a large set attached to a wooden frame by their dragon handles. Two separate tones could be produced by striking the bell in two different places – in the middle and at an angle on the side. The knobs are decorated with a beast restraining a bird. The meaning of this motif is not clear.

On display in Aziatisch Paviljoen, room 2
