This low drum references lacquered Qing dynasty drums created by artisans over two centuries ago. Drum-form objects were traditionally used in courtyard homes, gardens and outdoor pavilions where scholars read, wrote, discussed antiques and art and, in general, developed their inner sensibilities. In Buddhist history, drums served as bridges for heavenly communication and were integral parts of spiritual life. This drum boasts a beautiful faux shagreen exterior hand-lacquered in red. Wonderful as a side table or stool.
