This imposing chalice like object is actually a gong
or bell. Like almost all bells in East Asia, it has no clapper and is
meant to be struck rather than swung. Similar bells recently unearthed
in China have been shown to belong to sets or ensembles of bells in
graduated sizes, meant to be played together like a single instrument.
It is very likely that this bell was also part of such a set.Although
other Chinese bells of this early period were suspended mouth downward,
bells of the nao type were apparently designed to be mounted with the
open end up, since only in this position do their designs become
legible. Here the design consists of two flaring panels surrounded by
bands of hooked scrolls and divided by a strong vertical seam. The
raised elements emerging from the scrollwork in the middle of each panel
almost certainly represent the horns and muzzle of a mythical beast
known as a
