B. gong hangs from multicolored yarn which is strung through two holes in its side and looped over the hook on the mount. side of circular gong has simple etched lines and is angled to be slightly wider at back than front. sides do not actually indicate how thick the gong is since there is no back panal to make it a solid piece. front is etched with four flowers which are surrounded by leaves. C. mallet is stained wood with black painted end on handle. at one end is carved a large round ball shape which abruptly tapers into a long slim handle.
