chalk forms collection

The museum shows a large collection of chalk and lead mould representing ornamental and sacred figures which where used to decorate the bells. The collection is unique in its own kind, reminding the complex family of sacred icons applied as decorations for the foundry production. Beside the name of benefactor and the community which commissioned the opera, the bells used to be marked by a dedication signatures and a set of figures, generally consisting of Crucifix along with some figures of saints whom the community wished to celebrate. This is a modest but not least significant collection of chalk sculpture pieces conserved at the museum pertinent to the area of artistic fusion which where been realized starting from a chalk model supplied by sculptors.
