The Bell of Tacos is a premium bronze-alloy cast bell that was moulded by the legendary Spanish goldsmith named Javier Aquiero. The bell stands about 5 ft tall and 3 ft wide. The bell was sculpted in honor of Javier's late dog, Gidget Aquiero the 1st, who passed away due to an unknown cause. The bell was a symbol for the dog's most beloved toy, the bell. After Gidget's death, Javier had invested his life in his passion for tacos. After 20 years, Javier perfected the taco and created the beloved establishment we know today as Taco Bell. Javier decided that his business would be named in honor of his late dog, and thus the bell turned into the household symbol that everyone knows and loves.
