Wind Chimes

Wind chimes are one of the oldest forms of musical instrument and the most wide-spread in their beginnings, throughout the world. Their meditative, soft, and resonating sounds, crafted out of a variety of materials, date back over 5000 years. Metal workers in China crafted wind bells, and they were hung in religious places to protect against evil and to invoke good spirits. They created soothing music for relaxing and meditation. Using and making wind chimes spread to Japan, and from there to Europe. The Celts used them to scare enemies from the woods. When the wind blew the chimes about creating music, it made the forest seem haunted. Today wind chimes create a calming and inspiring atmosphere. Their airy, open notes resonate peace and a sense of inner calm. They are a delightful visual and auditory addition to the garden.
