For Light Grey Art Lab exhibition “The Lost Isle of Kismet”

A young woman dressed in an ensemble of rich cloth and jewels. Her arms glow with mysterious tattoos, she presents you with a bell shaped object. It is made of an unknown metal which glows as if it has just come hot out of the furnace. There are 4 groups of 9 studs on the object, but yet there is no clapper, there is a type of writing embossed on the surface along with a depiction of a dragon with a pearl. She repeats the word "Zhong" and "Bianzhong" to you and points towards the mountain while drawing a circle in the dirt at your feet which she wipes out and draws again and again until you realize she is telling you to take the metallic object up to the mountain by the time of the full moon eclipse. Do you do as she asks? Or do you move on? Taking this object will add weight to an already heavy load you are carrying... but you are intrigued.
