Royal Attendant for a Buddhist Shrine (one of a pair)
19th century
Gift from Doris Duke's Southeast Asian Art Collection
2005/1.448.1
Bronze temple bell with traces of polychrome, text, and lowermost handle in shape of a pair of addorsed lions. A decorated post threads through the space created by the back-to-back lions, on which an additional handle decorated with addorsed dragons is thread. The open space created between the dragons' connecting tails is where part of a frame would pass through, suspending the bell above the ground. This type of bell does not have a metal clapper, and is rung by striking with a wooden stick.
