6149 Antique Mani Singing Bowl with long inscription and excellent sustain

Large extra thick Mani with clear extensive artwork and consistent original patina. Unusual for this style, the bowl has a long inscription with the numbers 21 1 73 on it. The Nepal calendar runs 57 years ahead of ours (it is 2074 there in 2017) so the newest that date could be is 1917 – though very often inscriptions are added years after the bowl is made. Clear and strong soundscape with that penetrating quality that Manis have. The primary tone can flutter or be steady depending on the strike. Excellent sustain, the bowl holds its volume well and long. Even a soft tap results in a long ring. Plays off the rim well with a wand, the sound comes through well with a simple stick but a bit on the scratchy side With overtone at G6.
