Or, if you prefer, use the leather-sheathed striker to announce yourself by firmly striking either of its two different bells. There’s no need to strike hard, as each bell responds with its own distinctive tone, and carries the sound for the long run.
Twining up and over the 10-foot tall, 11-foot wide fir wood portal are copper vines bearing patinaed copper leaves, many struck with the names of loved ones by the organizer of this tremendous gift, Rhonda Hoffman, making this sculpture personal and unique.
