Tibetan hand cymbals called "Ting-sha" or Ding sha, are apart of the celestial orchestra, played by goddesses of dance, music and song. The Tingsha are individually handcrafted by the ancient Tibetan method of sand-casting. After casting, each individual Tingsha is skillfully tuned by hammering around the thick outer rim to create a perfectly matching pitch for each pair. The bell metal used in the Tingsha is made of a pure bronze alloy of copper and tin with a white metal component of zinc and nickel. This is what gives the chimes their perfect pitch clarity!
There are swirling dragons patterned into the Tingsha. The Dragon is one of the most powerful and revered symbols in Feng Shui. Dragons represent strength, goodness, and the spirit of change and transformation. Qi is described as the Cosmic Breath of the dragon. A well placed dragon can inspire and uplift you throughout your own personal growth and challenges.
These bells measure 2 1/2" in diameter with a 15" cord between them. They come in a beautiful pouch.
