Huge Rare Style Antique Jambati Singing Bowl – 11.5 pounds

1170 Huge Rare Style Antique Jambati Singing Bowl - 11.5 pounds

Extremely rare style, massive Jambati bowl with impressive power.  At 11½ pounds it is the largest antique bowl I’ve ever offered for sale. The beautifully crafted rim is an unheard of 3/4 inch wide.  The bowl has ancient patina and a tiny center circle.  Often this style was used for ceremonial Lingam bowls.

Tremendous sound projection as you would expect from a bowl this massive. The strike tone is close to a perfect E. Immediately after the strike the bowl begins slow deep oscillations. The bowl lends itself to play with different hardnesses of mallet [clip 2].  Like some ceremonial bowls with the same rim, it does not play well with ringing sticks. A rare piece that comes along once in a half million bowls. Overtones at E4 and C5.
