As the story goes... In the Spring of 2007, after spending some time teaching yoga in Europe, someone from the United States sold the strange UFO-shaped steel instrument he had bought in Switzerland (and toured Europe with) to a music store in the Southeast of France. That instrument was a rare PANArt Hang, number #1350 to be made.

That still unknown person sold their invaluable Hang to Pick-et-Boch, a renowned store in Lyon, France. It had been years since the store had seen one of these Swiss sound sculptures—inspired by the steel drum of Trinidad and Tobago. Between 2001 and 2003, they used to partner with the Hang makers, Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer, and sold only a few instruments to fortunate buyers right there in Lyon, France.
