Following their arrival in Vietnam, the bronze rain drums then started to be seen throughout Southeast Asia including Laos, Burma, Malaysia, Thailand and extensively throughout Indonesia in all these countries they can still be found in use today. The reason that frogs are depicted on many of them is because the Thunder God is afraid of frogs because the frogs subdue the God!. The extensive range of Asian bronze rain drums we supply are all made to this exacting standard. Each piece within our range is made individually by our Thai master artisans. The craftsmanship involved creates slight variations in color, finish, size, and shape — a quality we consider to be an added touch of uniqueness with no two items ever being exactly the same!.
