Nearly 1,300 relics and 500 scientific papers are on exhibit at Thu Dau Mot City’s Binh Duong Museum, including two priceless national treasures: a wooden burial jar with a brass drum lid and an ancient animal figurine.
When a bronze drum lid was unearthed in Phu Chanh commune, Tan Uyen town, Vietnam, in 2018, the authorities recognized it as an official national treasure.
Nguyen Van Cuong, a Vinh Tan peasant who lives in Phu Chanh, discovered the item at a depth of 1.8 – 2.5 meters in the end of 1998.
It was not long after receiving Cuong’s findings that the Ho Chi Minh City Archaeological Research Centre teamed up with the local museum to perform an excavation at the site, during which they unearthed an undamaged wooden burial jar and several items.
Natural wood veins decorate the 61-centimeter-high rosewood jar’s mouth, which measures 46–50 centimeters in circumference. With a diameter of 47.5 centimeters and a diameter of 44 centimeters, the bronze drum stands about 40 centimeters tall. Inverted V-shaped features and peacock feathers embellish this drumhead, which has a ten-point star in the center.
