Inscription.  

Seventh generation member of one of the circus world’s royal families, his upswept red hair and daredevil aerial high jinks set him apart as one of the preeminent clowns in recent history. His mastery of such apparatus as the swaypole, highwire, wheel and trampoline, paired with an infectious sense of comedy and fun prompted Time Magazine to name him “America’s Best Clown.” Bello’s career included eight years at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey with a final celebration called “Bellobration.”
