Vintage brass twin temple bells used to invoke the Hindu god, Shiva during the Hindu ritual known as the 'Aarti.' The bell is crafted with a figure of Nandi at the top, the bull that symbolises the strength of Lord Shiva and exquisitely crafted peacocks.
This vintage brass bell with a rich copper and gold finish is hand crafted by the skilled artisans from the south of India using the centuries old process of metal casting traditionally used for making Deities and temple bells.
The bell is rung with the desire indicating the invocation of divinity so that virtuous and noble forces enter and the demonic and evil forces from within depart.
The Nandi bull is the Vahana or vehicle of Lord shiva. Every Shaivite temple has the figure of the white humped bull reclining on a raised platform and facing the entrance door of the shrine so that according to tradition he may perpetually gaze on the lord in his symbolic form, the lingam.
