A gong (Javanese) is an musical percussion instrument that takes the form of a flat metal disc which is hit with a mallet. Gongs are made mainly from bronze or brass but there are many other alloys in use.   It emits a peculiarly sonorous sound, its complex vibrations bursting into a wave-like succession of tones.  In Indonesian culture, it is used in religious ceremonies, state processions, marriages and other festivals.     (Photo by IndSight/Ifan F Harijanto)
