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.
Old and antique instrument which still produces a wondeful sound. Pls click on the photo to get more info and photos.
