Free Tinkerbell SVG Files

Tinkerbell SVG is a percussion and signal instrument consisting of a hollow dome (sound source) and a tongue hanging on the axis of the dome making a sound when hitting the dome. The bell may hang or be fixed to a rocking base with the edges of the dome upwards; depending on the construction, the sound is excited by the rocking of either the dome (or rather the base on which it is fixed) or the tongue. In Western Europe, the dome is rocked more often than not, and in Russia, the language is used to create extremely large bells (“Tsar Bell”). There are also known bells without a tongue, which are beaten with a metal or wooden beater on the outside. Usually bells are made of so-called bronze bells, less often of iron, cast iron, silver, stone, terracotta and even glass.

Tinkerbell SVG History

The history of the Tinkerbell SVG goes back more than 4000 years. The earliest (XXIII-XVII centuries BC) of the found bells had small size and were made in China. In China, for the first time, a musical instrument of several dozen bells was also created. In Europe, a similar musical instrument (carillon) appeared almost 2000 years later.

The earliest known bell of the Old World today is the Assyrian bell from the British Museum, dating back to the ninth century BC.

In Europe, early Christians considered the bells to be typically pagan objects. The legend associated with one of the oldest bells in Germany, named “Saufang” (“Pig’s prey”), is telling in this respect. According to this legend, the pigs dug up the bell in the mud. When it was cleaned and hung on the bell tower, it showed its “pagan nature” and did not ring until it was consecrated by the bishop. However, the “impious” names of the bells do not necessarily indicate their negative spiritual essence: often we are talking only about musical errors (for example, on the famous Rostov belfry there are bells “Goat” and “Baran”, so called for the sharp, “brilliant” sound, and, conversely, on the belfry of Ivan the Great one of the bells is called “Swan” for the high, clear sound). In medieval Christian Europe the church bell was the voice of the church. On the bells were often placed quotations from the Holy Scriptures, as well as a symbolic triad – “Vivos voco. Mortuos plango. Fulgura frango” (“I mourn the living call. I mourn the dead. I tame the hermitage”). The resemblance of the bell to a human being is expressed in the names of parts of the bell (language, body, lip, ears). In Italy, the custom of “bell bell bell baptism” is still preserved (corresponds to the orthodox consecration of the bell).

Faith in the fact that with the help of a blow to the bell, bell, drum, you can get rid of the unclean force, is inherent in most religions of antiquity, from which the bell ringing and “came” to Russia. The ringing of bells, as a rule – cow’s bells, and sometimes ordinary pans, pots or other kitchen utensils, according to ancient beliefs, living in different regions of the planet, protected not only from evil, but also from bad weather, predatory animals, rodents, snakes and other bastards, drove out the disease. For today it was kept at shamans, Shintoists, Buddhists which service is impossible to imagine without tambourines, bells and bells. Thus, the use of the bell ringing for ritual and magical purposes has its roots in the distant past and is typical for many primitive cults.

Signal Tinkerbells SVG

The bell, which produces a loud and rapidly growing sound, has long been widely used as an alarm device. The bell ringing has been used to report emergencies or enemy attacks. In previous years, before the development of telephone communications, fire alarms were transmitted via bells. When a fire broke out, it was necessary to hit the nearest bell. Hearing the ringing of the distant fire bell should have immediately hit the nearest bell. Thus, the fire alarm quickly spread across the village. The fire bells were an essential attribute of public places and other public institutions in pre-revolutionary Russia, and in some places (in remote rural areas) have been preserved to this day. The bells were used on the railway to signal the departure of trains. Before the appearance of flashing beacons and special means of sound signaling on horse-drawn carts, and later on emergency vehicles the bell was installed. The tone of the signal bells was specially made different from the church bells, so that the signal could always be easily identified. The signal bells were also called nabat bells. The market has long been used on ships – “ship (ship) bell” – to give signals to the crew and other vessels. Also, the market is beaten every half hour to indicate the time.
