The Bell of Peace and Harmony at Meadowlark Gardens

The Bell of Peace and Harmony is a relatively new addition to Meadowlark Gardens.  Over our last several visits we have watched it being built and here is a selection of our photos.

  1. What a beautiful setting. So glad to see the details. My favorite was the lanterns on the backs of turtles. Wonder what the meaning is. Also don't know the meaning of the totems. Do you?
