Photo of the monastery (Белогорский монастырь), with 12 bells in an open ground-level shed

A photo from 2013 shows an older version of the shed, with 9 bells.

A winter photo from 2016 shows the current bell shed in front of the church.

The Russian Wikipedia article about the monastery offers two of the above photos, but says nothing about them.

The Wikimedia Commons category for the monastery has more photos, including closeups of the bells in both the old and new bell sheds.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unidentified bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
