The music of the Woodstock Flutter Windbell will add a light note of focus to your environment. The Flutter Bell has a sweet design that combines nature with a single bell of nature. It has a 3-dimensional butterfly and dragonfly that flutters among beautiful stone accents. It features a circular windcatcher and had a charming rustic quality.
Bells have been used throughout the ages to accompany dance, to provide comfort and to warn of possible danger. The Chinese were the first to control the pitch or note of a bell, making it possible for them to play tunes. Soon bells were being used to accompany worship. On New Year’s Eve the bells in Buddhist temples are rung 108 times, once for each of the 108 worldly desires.
In the East, bells have become very important and are often decorated with significant symbols. The butterfly represents metamorphosis, and the dragonfly, which can fly forwards and backward, represents flexibility and change.
For centuries, tuned bells have been suspended in homes and temples to ward off evil and attract good luck and prosperity.
