8683 Well preserved abundantly etched Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with

Very well preserved beautifully adorned Manipuri with a clear central five pointed star. The bowl has deep and pronounced hammermarks outside which is unusual for this type bowl. The wear pattern is also unusual, all the etchings and features are crisp except for the rim punches which indicate the bowl was handled on the rim but not used in such a way that the inside of the bowl was touched. The color BTW is very bright but the interior is textured rather than smooth. A unique example of the ancient art. (if bowl 8864 is available look at it, same style of manufacture but significant wear). Sound wise the bowl is as sharp as its looks with a nervous soundscape and rather short sustain. This is a bowl to shake things up, not smooth them out. Not much is to be had off the rim, the sharp edge preventing much grip. With overtones at F#5, F6, C#7, G#7.
