This interesting and fun display is a collection of Temple Bells, elephant bells, wind chimes, gongs and rattles, defying any ill wind to "blow no good." The various objects originated from India, Thailand and Japan and were assembled into the present musical sculpture by Edward Brownlee in 1965. Its form was inspired by the free-standing torii gates at Shinto shrine entries. The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is home to over 1,6000 pieces of authentic Pacific and Asian artworks and artifacts.

These were a favorite gift of our family and friends back in the US ... From hand blown glass to cast brass, the sound of one or many stirs up such fond memories. One special chime adorns the drawer pull of an end table - the brass samurai helmet is the perfect height for our Sheltie, Miko, to ring. Just below is a shrine to her brother, Kota, who passed in 2011. Miko often rings the bell and sits/lays with a toy for a moment as if paying homage. Tis sad, but a beautiful tribute! Miss you…

I bought some of these chimes for my mom while I was in Myanmar. My favorite Asian country.
