      Ukraine Bronze Table Bell – King Lear – 2014

      Andrey Martynyuk and Marina Kyrychenko,
      in association with designer Vyacheslav Maleev,
      have decided to issue a new bell for 2014.

      The bell will be based on William Shakespeare’s tragedy King Lear,
      and will feature characters and events from the play.

      Wikipedia: King Lear is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. The title character descends into madness
      after disposing of his estate between two of his three daughters based on their flattery, bringing
      tragic consequences for all.

      King Lear and the Fool in the Storm

      Goneril and Regan

      Cordelia in the Court of King Lear

      Lear and Cordelia

      Lear and Cordelia in Prison


      Description of King Lear bell by Marina Kyrychenko:

      issued by Andrey Martynyuk (Kiev, Ukraine)
      design by Vyacheslav Maleev (Sevastopol, Crimea)

      Bronze, 12 cm, deep relief, heavy casting.

      Front is Lear and the Fool. Reverse is Goneril and Regan.
      Top is two birds in the cage (Cordelia and King Lear). Clapper is a broken heart.
      ” Come let’s away to prison:
      We two alone will sing like birds i’ th’ cage;
      When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down
      And ask of thee forgiveness. So we’ll live
      And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh.”

      Bell model (below) is finished. They hope to cast the bell in April 2014 for orders received.
