Artist's description:

This bell is a product of a long work. The idea behind it as I see it now is the ultimate intimacy of any essential knowledge. Thus the human faces are meant to express an awful silence of those who know, and the dragons are staring at each other in a related, speechless attitude. The bell itself is cast in 935 Sterling silver in a series of 30 copies and chased into its best sound and shape with hammers. On its surface, two couples of entwining dragons are etched and a round box is attched above in the same Sterling silver with two faces chased in 900 silver with an addition of palladium for more wear-resistance of the finest features of the surface, keeping the pure white of the silver. Their noses are filled with the 675 silver solder from within. Inside the tightly closing box, there is a lock with a strong spring of forged and hardened stainless steel and a tiny round knob in fine gold with a concave sphere in its middle - a homology to the concavity of the box itself. The button of the lock is made in a hard palladium-gold-copper-silver alloy with a greenish lustre. The bail above inlaid with a rivet of 585 palladium white gold, forged after setting. A fine, thawing sound with a considerable fade off and light, multicoloured overtones. Rhodium plated, except the golden knob.
A bell in 935 silver with etched two couples of entwining dragons upon it and a round box above in the same Sterling silver with two faces chased in 900 silver with an addition of palladium for durability of the finest features of the surface.
