The Angel Bells are crafted in Mexico where ‘the angel has great cultural significance.’ In particular, the Angel of Independence is a majestic monument inaugurated in 1910 in Mexico City to pay tribute to the heroes of Mexico’s independence. Much to the distress of the populace, In 1957 a strong earthquake shook the angel from its perch. The sculpture survived and a short time later was re-established on its high perch to the delight of the Mexican people. “Today, due to its importance, the Angel of Independence is, along with the Zócalo, one of the two places in which Mexican people gather to celebrate or to protest in special occasions like political meetings and manifestations, or victorious performances of the Mexican football team in world championships.” -Mexico City – Guide.com
