This ornament features our monastery bell tower. Inspired by the wooden bell towers of the Carpathian Mountains in Eastern Europe, we built this one to keep the Orthodox tradition of tolling bells as a call to prayer. Built in 1980, it holds seventeen bells which are played by hand to produce rapid rhythmic patterns.
Custom design, etched in brass, gold-plated. 3" x 2", pre-strung with a metallic cord and a small story card in a black velveteen pouch
