Rain drum with waisted base. The top is finely cast in relief with concentric geometric designs and birds. There are two pairs of looped handles on either side. Four sets of stylized frogs, 3 in each set, are applied on the rim. A parade of elephants on top of a tree design appears on the side with two snails at the top and one below. The tympanum has a twelve pointed star in the center. Most of the drums of this type were produced in Burma but travelled all over southeast Asia via trade and as gifts.
