This instrument belongs to the Tharu ethnic group of Udayapur District but is also found in other places. The Golki is made by nailing deerskin over one end of a hollow section of bamboo 18cm in diameter. A string is attached to the centre of this skin from the inside. This string is then fastened to and held taught by two vertical bamboo supports. These are fixed, to the outside wall on opposite sides of the bamboo pot and meet at the top giving a total length of 75cm. A good player can play several very nice melodious tunes by plucking the string whilst at the same time squeezing the bamboo supports thereby causing vibration and altering the tension on the string

In Nepali artworks, Lord Buddha and all Buddhist monks or Lamas and especially Medicine Buddha carry a begging bowl; this traditional brass bowl was and is also used for healing as well as for collecting their daily food. The bowl was placed on the part of the body that was sick and was made to resonate by beating with a stick or by chanting healing mantra across it.
