"Gong pour musique Asiatique et gamelan percution XIX"
Large ceremonial Indo-Buddhist gong, ceremonial object old Bali or Java origin nineteenth. This art object is first of all a sacred musical instrument. It is really very present and well balanced, still sounds deep, even if it has been dismantled and reassembled several times. One feels that it is borrowed from a true festive solemnity, a spirit of pomp and ceremony and also from a certain dreamlike poetry proper to great rituals. Inhabited by animals still a little wild, his two howling dragons are very expressive, they hold the audience in respect. As for the two lions of the gong, their rather archaic modeling could indicate that this part is even older than the piece of furniture itself. When this gong sounds everything pushes to dream, to exoticism and mysticism... This object certainly comes from a rich donor, it is today the historical witness of an often little known history of ritual percussions all around the islands of the probe.
