The concept of a Talking Tree has been in the mythic human mind for as long as stories have existed.
The Greeks believed that the Dodona Grove prophesized, not only delivering the oracles as living beings but also reading the futures of the sea when used as wood for ships.
In ancient Indian lore the Tree of the Sun and the Moon provided future knowledge to weary travelers, speaking as a man in the daytime and a woman by night.
In myths from England and Scotland oracular trees spoke to respected Druids knowledgeable in divination. Even in more recent years, talking trees can be found in Tolkien novels, showing up as the Ents, an ancient and well-respected tribe of trees residing in the forest of Fangorn.
This Strong Oak Wood Gong Stand channels the ancient foresight of this magnificent mythic species and expresses its voice, not through the wood as in classic tales, but through the gong it carries.
Give this stand sentience through the vibrations of a 40" or 48" Gong!
A 40" Wind Gong will allow the stand an initially deep and full voice with a quick thunderous crash, reminiscent of the chaos and bright splash of summer storms.
The 40" Chau Gong allots the stand a more serious tone, the gong is rimmed causing a more drawn out deep tone and a slower, smoother crash... perhaps wiser and more profound.
The 48" Wind and Chau Gongs keeps in tune with the 40" (with the Wind being quicker and the Chau moving far slower) but the difference is in SHEER POWER AND PRESENCE AND LOW LOW FREQUENCY OF TONE.
The oracular statements pulsating outwards from within the Talking Tree stands will provide musicality in the 40" transforming into more pure sound as you reach the 48" It mirrors the deep, slow, powerful intensity of Tolkien's Ents.
You get a full body sonic massage from 48 inch Chinese Gongs.
In the 21st century we find ourselves residing in a world that everyday grows brighter and colder, flowing slowly away from the natural and ignoring what it has to say about our future. Give a voice back to the trees, allow them to speak in low growls and quick crashes and listen to the prophesies of the future.
