Original Works of Art
Part of the Gamelan orchestra. This instrument is called a gender, which is a general name for such a metallophone. The metal plates will resonate with the air in the underlying bamboo poles underneath and subsequently sound is produced. An hammer with a rubber head is used to play the gender. The colour red is often associated with extra-natural powers and the colour gold radiates richdom. The kala heads on both sides of the gender are meant as protection for hostile spirits.
1930-1950
Old and antique instrument which still produces a wondeful sound. Pls click on the photo to get more info and photos.
