    Telescopic (3 parts ) Ceremonial trumpet "Zungs Dung" from Nepal ..Made of copper .

    Dung chen, literally, "great trumpet," are made from several different materials and are typically identified by association with those materials, including brass (rag dung), copper (zangs dung) and silver (dngul dung). As a result of early scholars encountering brass trumpets (rag dung) before other types, these were thought to be the most common. For this reason, many dung chen are generically and mistakenly referred to as rag dung. This instrument is constructed primarily of copper; therefore, its correct identification is zangs dung. The only two systematic distinctions that can be made in classifying dung chen are (1) the number of telescoping sections into which each collapses (two or three); and (2) the overall extended length of the instrument.
