Chinese instrument makers have been creating gongs for thousands of years. The 17.5 Inch Hanging Gong is a striking addition to your garden and features a black-finished ash wood bar and polished bronze gong. The gong is fine-toned by a hand-hammering process and has a lifetime tuning guarantee, plus a delicately textured surface. This piece hangs 17.5 inches in length and is 10 inches in diameter.
In Buddhism, the gong is sounded at the start and end of each day. In Chinese temples, it's struck 108 times because it is believed that sentient beings have 108 types of worries. The teaching is that 'upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow.'
