This large Burmese bell is known as hka-lauk and was used to track the movement of a livestock animal, strung from a collar by the two loops at the top. Dated to the 19th century, the bell was cast of bronze using the lost wax method with a traditional pattern of flowering stems within rectangular frames. Displayed on a custom mount, this storied functional object becomes a small work of sculpture.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
