Oetken 28" Chiron Gong (#MPB031)
Each handmade Oetken Gong has its own individual range of tonality and feel, all while retaining the quality of the classic style. Although Broder Oetken is well known as one of the current gongmasters in the world, he says he is constantly developing, honing, and perfecting his gongmaking process. Like his mentor, Walter Meyer, he intends to pass his knowledge to his apprentices to ensure that this rare handicraft continues.
Chiron - discovered in 1977 - the comet-asteroid that orbits mostly between Uranus and Saturn - named after the Mythic Wounded Healer a centaur half horse and half human who was wounded in the leg and subsequently pursued healing with the teaching of Apollo and eventually taught Aesclepius, the Greek God of Medicine. Chiron serves as a connecting point. It is between Saturn (traditional, structured, predictable) and Uranus (eccentric, unpredictable, and inventive). Chiron folks strive to bring new ideas into existing structures, or bring some structure to innovative ideas.
