The artist´s comment on the artwork:
“Estonia has a big and very important music culture. In my blacksmithing work I tried to develop a shape that creates interesting and intense sounds through the material. By hitting the two heavy iron bells against each other or some other material, they create a very intense and long sound, that can catch the attention of the viewers. It was important for me to combine two things that Estonia is known for: blacksmithing and music.”
The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners.
