An online show on bronze drums excavated in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region was recently launched by the China Cultural Center in Wellington, New Zealand.

With a history of more than 2,000 years, bronze drums have appeared in a variety of fields in Chinese culture, including wars, ceremonies, paintings and dances.

And Guangxi is home to thousands of bronze drums, ranging from the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

The exhibition has four parts, each unveiling the history, function, craft and artistic value of the drums.
