HAND CARVED Teak Wood Elephant Bell, external clangors.

This is an Authentic LARGER Hand Carved Teak Wood Elephant Bell.
Larger bells such as this were hung about the Elephant's necks so the Mahouts could more easily locate their animals while they are out feeding in the jungles. This Unique Bell was HAND MADE by the Mahout (elephant handler and owner). There are two long wooden clangors one on each side of the middle section that creates the Unique Sounds as it swings back and forth with the Swaying Movement of these Gentle Giants.
These same type bells are also placed on some of the larger Water Buffaloes.

This intriguing Bell measures approx. 6" high and 5 1/2" wide including the side clangors.
