Ancient bronze drums found in Quang Nam

Nhan Dan, 14 feb 2009

One drum is almost intact and its surface is decorated with a sun and six sunbeams in the middle and four fogs with their heads turning in a clockwise direction.

The other drum has lost the lower part and its surface has a hole in the middle. The four fogs on the surface, meanwhile, look to the anticlockwise direction.
