The construction was started in 1733 finished in 1735
This is regarded as the largest bell in the world but some would say that it is not a bell as it has never been hung or rung as it was broken in casting.

Impressive, David. I read about this bell many years ago, when I was a boy.
Sharp details.


Hi David,
A great entry for this weeks theme. Full framed and good details.

Bonjour David
It is what would have been a sensational piece of art, and you took it under a good angle
Very interesting note and natural colours too.
It reminds me a french poem from La Fontaine called
The Frog who wanted to becomme as big as a Beef, in which the frog try to swell more and more and more as far as she exploded eheheh
Bon dimanche

Hi Davis,

The tight frame is putting the bell in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the bell. It is a good addition to the Friday's theme. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi David,

What amazing numbers, what an amazing achievement for those times.

I like your POV that shows us the size of this behemoth.
