[英文]Ceremonial bells and zither
[英文]Bronze ceremonial bells called bianzhong (編鐘), mounted on wooden frames; chimestones, called bianqing (編磬), and stringed instrument, or guqin (古琴). These instruments were used in ancient China for court music; the most famous extant set of these instruments belonged to Lord Yi of Zeng (d. 433 BCE); they were unearthed in Hubei in 1978 (Shaughnessy 2000 p. 208). A comparison of the flooring and wall plaster with those of image wa0007 and the text describing the Tainan Confucius Shrine$s musical instrument storehouse strongly suggests that these instruments were also housed in the Tainan Confucius Temples.
