The Hanging Chau Goong is the most spectacular one in the whole Woodstock collection. With a deep sound and an elegant and minimalist design, it captures the splendour of Far East and reflects balance, harmony and beauty. 

Gongs of various types have played an important role in both religious and secular life in many Asian cultures. They have been the revered instruments of warriors, emperors, princes and priests. Gongs are essential in Buddhist temples: they are sounded at the beginning and the end of the day. They are struck by Chinese people 108 times to get rid of 108 types of worries, as "upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow". Gongs can also be sounded to chase away evil spirits, warn of danger, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. 

The Hanging Chau Gong will add a very special aura to any setting in your home. When played, its wonderful sound will transport you and bring the ancient wonders of Far East home.
