DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

This gong captures the romance and splendor of the Far East with it dramatic and blank design.

The Emperor Series is inspired by traditional Asian design. It offers wonderful sound and is intended to reflect balance, harmony, grace and beauty.

For thousands of years the Chinese have made instruments such as gongs and are deserving of their reputation of making the best in the world. In creating these Chinese gongs there are many processes, including fine toning as a result of hand-hammering.

In Buddhism tradition, the start of each day begins with the gong being sounded. Gongs are struck 108 times in Chinese temples because it's believed that sentient beings have 108 types of worries. The teaching is this - upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow.

Unlike anything else, the brilliant resonance of the gong has the ability to transport us to another time and place. For over a thousand years gongs of various types have played an important role in both the religious and secular music of many Asian cultures. It is said the sounding of gongs chase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness and strength. Today, this revered instrument of warriors, emperors, princes and priests adds a special aura to any setting. Woodstock Gongs are handcrafted using traditional methods, bringing the ancient wonders of the Far East home.

I purchased this item as a gift and haven't taken it out of the original packing but it appears to be fine from what I can see.

Weather and time had made our original Emperor Gong tinny, after about 10 years. However, we couldn't live without it, so we bought another one. It's so beautiful and works so well with our back patio and garden.
