8874 Wildly complex Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with incredible sustain

Manipuri with a mirror like interior, which I take as evidence of some unusual metallic combination. Once fully adorned this bowl now has only faint artwork. This could be an extremely old bowl. The soundscape is as distinctive as the bowl, incredibly complex with many tones competing for your attention. They come together in a brassy harmony. Sustain is outstanding, in the recording you can still hear multiple tones and pulsing at the 30 second mark. Volume is stunning off the rim, hard to keep the bowl in recording range. You can individually play lows, mids and highs. Wow. With overtones at G#5, G6, D#7.
