This round chime which features a butterfly motif is composed of ten rustic cylinder bells and 5 rustic cone bells, each topped with a colourful glass bead. These bells are made by artisans in India using an age-old technique of metal-work (metal is beat into shape by hand, then buried under the hot sand kiln). This gives each bell a unique patina and beautiful round tone.
Wind chimes have long been used, since ancient culture, to protect the inhabitants of a home. Tones have a healing effect on our bodies, calm our minds and awaken our spirits. The resonance and vibration of sound releases stress and emotional blockages in the body. The calming of mind expands conscious awareness and connection with spirit. Wind chimes thereby help enhance the mind/body/spirit connection bringing us a sense of peace and well being.
Butterflies are symbols of powerful transformation, purity and beauty. They inspire a lightness of being that is in tune with the emotional or spiritual rather than more earthly matters. In many cultures they are viewed as the departed souls of ancestors; while the chrysalis may be the souls trapped inside the body, the butterfly represents the emergence and freedom of the soul.
