This lesson will be useful to you if you want to know how to draw a bell step by step. The bell is a metal percussion musical and a signal instrument. Most bells have the shape of a hollow cup that when struck vibrates in a single strong strike tone, with its sides forming an efficient resonator.
Nowadays bells are widely used for religious purposes, such as calling the religious faithful to prayer, expressing solemn moments of worship, in music, and as a signaling device in the navy. The use of bells for socio-political purposes, as a bell to summon citizens to a meeting, is known. In medicine, there is a new trend that uses bell ringing for therapeutic purposes.
