Unlike Kevin’s other sound sculptures, ShantiSong is less than 2 feet tall, making it perfect for a patio or sideboard. Perhaps influenced by the artist’s time living in Japan, ShantiSong has an Oriental feel and a particularly sweet sound.
Its native mesquite base came from a tree near the artist’s home. The bell, striker, and base are all separate pieces that find perfect harmony together.
