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 taotie.
