Description
 
An antique "gendang" or "kentongan". Made of teak and used throughout javanese villages to warn or update the people. The amount and length of the beat indicated the "warning". Other stations or warning posts throughout the village would hear and repeat the beat.

The hollow center gives the kentongan its sound and it is typically held by string or wood from the top.

Every kentongan is uniquely different. Most are not carved at the ends - and the carving is more recent. The kentongan itself is over 75-100 years old.

The beating stick is not original and just a copied replica.

Use the kentongan to call your kids to dinner or announce to your spouse their services are required.
