The Bell 钟
The Bell is based on two legendary Chinese characters, Pan Gu and Nu Wa, who in the void of emptiness create the universe and life. Through a mixture of dependence and independence, a society is formed and people build a communal centerpiece in the form of a large bell. This bell brings joy and a sense of unity. However, hidden within society's glory and pride, there is fear, suspicion and jealousy. That which is made as a symbol of society becomes the wedge of society's undoing. How easily can the world turn upside down?
