Sharp Looking Large Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl

3068 Sharp Looking Large Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl

Heavy large very well preserved Thadobati Lingam bowl. Sharp features inside and out including a matte finish below the lower outside line. Spectacular example of these hard to find ceremonial bowls with original patina preserved. The most likely date for this bowl is 15th to 17th century. It was acquired by Best Singing Bowls in 2012. The underneath bottom of the bowl and slightly up the sides has a more pure copper color, an unusual feature for any bowl.

High strike tone quickly superseded by a lower but still high oscillating secondary tone. When struck with the high L-8 mallet the soundscape is steady, When struck with the middle tone L-6 mallet the oscillations are more pronounced. This can be heard in recording 1. Powerful off the rim, strong volume when played with a large stick, really best with the leather side. Rated exceptional for the combination of sweet soundscape and extreme rarity. With overtones at D#6, D7, A7.
