This artwork is in beauty highly artistic and exceptionally delightful. The bell is since times unknown a ritual organ held in great reverence by almost all major religious traditions to include Indian, Greek and Christian. In some ecclesiastical systems, as in Christianity, it is also a symbol of clergy's rank and authority. Ringing a bell adds sanctity to an occasion whether of birth or other kind of happiness, a prayer or a holy soul's salvation. The bell is since long an auspicious and holy art motif and an artefact used as gift. Patna Museum, Bihar has in its collection such 10th century decorative bell which in all probabilities was gifted to Gandhakuti at Kurkihar wherefrom it has been recovered. It affirms the tradition of exchanging auspicious bells as gifts to have prevailed at least by the 10th century.

This bell has the resemblance of a votive stupa. The National Museum, New Delhi has in its collection a 9th century Nalanda model of a votive stupa and the Mainamati itself. They both have, more or less, an alike appearance. In its model this bell greatly corresponds to them. But besides such stupa resemblance the bell has no other Buddhist motif. It has rather carved on it, and quite prominently, Lord Vishnu's ten incarnations, the Dasavatara, namely, Matsyavatara, Kurmavatara, Varahavatara, Narsinghavatara, Vamanavatara, Parashuramavatara, Ramavatara, Krishnavatara, Buddhavatara and Kalkiavatara, which is a pure Vaishnava theme.

Below is an arabesque panel. It contains besides creepers and flowers, various deities, including Lakshmi, Ganesha, and Saraswati, further cementing the auspiciousness of the bell.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
