About Indian Metal/Bell Craft & Artisans
Indian Handicraft industry provides livelihood to many artisans. Amongst the wide range of handicrafts, metalwork is one of the popular crafts in India. Some popular techniques can be traced back 5,000 years to the ancient city of Mohenjo-Daro in the Indus Valley Civilization.
Bells or commonly called as Ghanta in Sanskrit is the unique cultural form of Indian culture. These Ghanta or ritual bells are the essential part of Indian temples. Hindu temple has a metal bell hanging at the entrance and devotees use to ring the bell while entering the temple as a sign of their prayer. It is believed that the sound and the ripple echo the bell generates reverberates on the human aura.
Artisans cut and hammer metal to create bell structure. The outer is coated in brass and copper and fired in local or homemade furnaces. This lends a rustic and unique look to each bell.
