Timbal Crafts


The Pu tribes, ancestors of Zhuang Nationality, is said to be the first creator and user of timbal. Timbal was created more than 2000 years ago (maybe in the Spring and Autumn period) and classified as Beiliu timbal, Lingshan timbal and Lengshuichong timbal, all of which are the choicest of timbal crafts. As a bronze percussion instrument, timbal was used for not only music playing or dance accompaniment, but also activities like sacrifice and ceremony to convey a good blessing with the beating of drums in ancient time.

Nowadays, timbal crafts have become one of the much-loved tourist souvenirs in Guangxi.
