Description of work
This landscape design piece was gifted to the citizens of Vancouver from the city of Guangzhou to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the twinning of the two cities. The Western Han Dynasty BelI marks the location of the first Chinese settlement in the lower mainland of BC. It is a replica of one unearthed in 1983 during an excavation in Guangzhou. The original bell dates back over two millennia and symbolizes the age of settlement in the Pearl River delta in Guangzhou.
