Not a very earth-shattering post but I just thought that I would link together a photo that I noticed today when looking again at Tony Chen's article on the Miao Fertility Festival in Langde village ... stival.htm with one of our long-running (and, from the views, popular, threads). You can see that Langde village's bronze drum is being carried down from the village ... o_ff05.htm and Tony refers to its use in the ceremonies over several days.

In the forum thread 'Ge Jia, Rao Jia & Bailing Miao batik quilt covers, drums' (started by Andrew and with a title edited to include 'drums' by me) especially page 2 ... c&start=15 Andrew posted wax resist covers with motifs based on drums and I and Andrew have posted photos of drums in a few Miao and Shui villages including Da Zhai village, Taipan township, Taijiang county, Guizhou province which has a similar festival costume to Langde village. I assume they are a related Miao group.

So, as I said at the start, not an earth shattering post but I just like linking things together!

Bronze drums have great significance for the Miao, Buyi, Yao and Dong peoples. They also have great historical significance for Han Chinese people as well.
