Korean Friendship Bell by Peter Ozdzynski

Korean Friendship Bell is a massive and intricately-decorated bronze bell in the heart of Angel’s Gate Park. It was donated in 1976 by the people of the Republic of Korea to celebrate the bicentennial of the U.S. independence, honour veterans of the Korean War, and to consolidate traditional friendship between the two countries. The bell is patterned after the Bronze Bell of King Songdok, which was cast in 771 A.D. and is still on view in South Korea today. The bell is set in a stone pagoda which was constructed on the site by thirty craftsmen flown in from Korea. (San Pedro, California, USA)
