Staff members adjust chime bells after they were transferred to a newly-built exhibition hall of Hubei Provincial Museum in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, Oct. 14, 2021. The set of chime bells were recently relocated to the newly-built third phase project of the museum. Chime bell, or bian zhong in Chinese, is a percussion instrument that became prevalent in China from the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-771 B.C.). The country's largest set of chime bells ever unearthed was found in 1978, also in Suizhou, in the tomb of Marquis Yi, a ruler of the ancient Zeng State. The set of 65 chime bells has been a key highlight of the various collections of the Hubei Provincial Museum. (Xinhua/Xiao Yijiu)
