173 Gorgeous Antique Manipuri Lingam Singing Bowl with audible crack.

Fully adorned ceremonial Manipuri Lingam. Full set of leaves punches, lines and bands outside in an excellent state of preservation. Also full and clear rim punches. A real show piece. Inside is quite smooth, the design at the bottom has for the most part been worn away. I interpret this as evidence of heavy yet careful ceremonial use. Great metal in this bowl, the inside just glows and the outside has a bright consistent color. Originally a $1200, bowl somewhere between me seeing it in Asia and sitting in my hand in California it suffered some kind of insult. As you can hear in the first sound clip there is a buzz, which for the life of me I can’t see the source of anywhere on the bowl. One effect of the crack is the sound is short lived, not much more than 10 seconds. The actual soundscape is very good and the buzz does drop out. Not a stick bowl, you could get a bit out of the rim with a Frank Perry wand With overtones at C6, B6.
