The beautiful figurine of ‘dancing girl’ from Mohanjodaro stands evidence of this fact. Metals like bronze, brass and bell metals are formed by alloying the copper with other metals mainly tin and zinc. The art of making articles from bell metal is one of the important craft form in Kutch, Gujarat. Kutch is located in the state of Gujarat, fortunate with one of the most environmentally and culturally rich landforms. It is an ancient land and the second largest district in India.

Manufacturing bell metal products has a glorious past in India.  Bell metal is an alloy of copper and zinc. Whereas these alloys are used to produce articles such as sculptures of deities, mythological figures and animals, pots, pans, utensils and bells etc. The sound of bells signifies the seven musical notes. Bells are one of the oldest percussion instruments. The unique ability of producing sounds that reaches vast distance and was used by several cultures and ancient civilizations as a mode of communication and also as a musical instrument. It is believed that each part of the hand crafted bell represent a particular deity, goddess Saraswathi (Goddess of wisdom) resides on its clapper or tongue, Lord Brahma on its face, Lord Rudra on its middle and vasuki on its stem. The handle of the bell denotes the life-giving energy or vital force (Prana Shakti). Pleasantly sounding bells is an accurate mixture of copper and tin (4:1 i.e., 78% copper and 22% tin).
