Asian Civilisations Museum - Pejeng Style Bronze Drum

After visiting the exhibition on the terracotta warriors, I went to the next exhibition hall and visit artefacts from South East Asia. Saw this very huge pejeng drum in the hall.

Made from bronze and cast in several sections, this drum is decorated with stylised flowers and saw teeth, as well as pairs of faces with bulging eyes between the drum's handles. This piece is a testament to the technological achievements of early Southeast Asians.
