A Brief History of Wind Chimes
The history of wind chimes is multicultural and extends back to 3000 B.C. The original wind chimes were made of stones, sticks, bone, and other nature material to ward off evil spirits and protect crops from birds. The earliest signs of wind chimes come from Southeast Asia, and they moved to Egypt and the Mediterranean where they were first cast in metals.
The Chinese were the first to design wind chimes for musical and artistic purposes in 1100 B.C. These chimes were still used to ward off evil spirits. Buddhists hung hundreds of wind chimes at their temples and shrines to both ward off evil spirits and beckon benevolent spirits (like fairies? I think so).
Wind chimes didn’t enter western culture until the 1800’s. The popularity of Feng Shui aided the spread of wind chimes to western households, since the soothing sound of the chimes is thought to help the positive flow of Chi.
