This image of the two headed Chu Phoenix sitting on tiger feet with a drum is repeated throughout the museum and the parks in Wuhan. This piece is in the 7 cranes park
The pictures were nice but the real drums were better.
We saw a performance at the museum that startled eyes and ears. Drums and bells, pipes, flutes and something that looked like an oboe.
He played a solo and a duet with the young lady in the next picture
This is the 'ancient instrument' kind of a zither-like instrument - very beautiful sound
Two other ladies played bamboo pipes
These are brass bells - they played several beautiful Chinese pieces and then "The Bells of St. Clemens" as a finale.
The bell players always seemed to be hiding behind the bells.
These are STONE bells. Several examples were in the Museum from ancient tombs around the state.
This example is really really old
The stone bells have a clear high sound
The bronze bells sound like church bells
This is a different ancient instrument (I think)
I love the designs on this instrument.
