Bell making is a traditional art form which originated out of the need to track herds of cattle though the remote areas of India. Herders knew the sound of their cattle by the tone each bell. Generations later, these bells are still being made: some for temple purposes, some for herding purposes, and some for decorative purposes like those which we bring to you. The Luhar family has been making these bells for years and the tradition has been passed down from father to son. They preserve the technique by sharing their skills with family.
