Why this is a
Masterpiece

Perfectly documented, this artefact is invaluable evidence of the contemporary use of Dongsonian drums.

History of the Object
This instrument was given to Professor Paul Rivet, founder of the Musée de l'Homme (Museum of Mankind) in 1931 or 1932 by Mr. Dinh Cong Xieng (Tuan Phu in Hoa Binh Province). It belonged to the donor's brother, who died childless, thus bringing an end to its usefulness.
