A very special shape bell from Spain.
It is a gift of a friend, Prof. Anton Muraru.
Spain - Matador's bell
The tradition of European masks developed, more self-consciously, from court and civic events, or entertainments managed by guilds and co-fraternities. These grew out of the earlier revels and had become evident by the 15th century in places like Rome, Venice and Nice, where they developed as entertainments to enliven towns and cities. Thus the Maundy Thursday carnival in St Marks Square in Venice, attended by the Doge and aristocracy also involved the guilds, including a guild of maskmakers.

This is a wonderfull gift I got from my friend Lucia.
