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.
1950-1970
