Why this is a
Masterpiece

The instrument has a simple structure but has distinctive legs engraved with animal faces. However, it is an instrument that is losing its place due to the modern technological civilization.

History of the Object
An ohnmang, a type of slit drum, was used in temples to inform time. The middle is hollowed out and makes sound from the resonation when struck on the top with a stick.
