The bell is a musical instrument and also a sound object of a hollow or conical shape, which has on the inside a rattle or a small sphere that produces sound when placed in contact with its surface. Apart from a musical instrument and a sound object, the bell has a trait that is associated with its´ presence in salutary, fertility and vegetative rituals, forms and versions of which we encounter till this day. The sound alone or in combination caused awe, excitement but also fear, strong emotions which the performers aimed at transferring to the beneficial or deleterious forces of nature, in an attempt to summon them or to exorcise them.
