Large Bronze Burmese Gong on Stand
The low, rich sound of this Burmese temple gong is pleasant and gentle, yet impossible to ignore. We found the hand hammered bronze gong while traveling in Burma many years ago. We later had the stand, constructed of aged, reclaimed elm wood, custom made in China using traditional joinery methods. Thick, heavy bronze, blackened in the Burmese style, is responsible for the haunting sound of the gong. The striker, also made in Burma, has a hand sewn fabric cover. Dimensions of gong only: diameter 21" (53 cm), depth 3" (8 cm). Dimensions of stand: height 42" (107 cm), width 28" (71 cm), depth 18" (46 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
