Sharp Looking Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl

3068 Sharp Looking 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. 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 High strike tone quickly superseded by a lower but still high oscillating secondary tone when struck with a hard mallet, oscillating tone alone with the softer one.  Note the difference in the soundscapes on recording 1 with the two mallets. Powerful off the rim, strong volume when played with a large stick, really best with the leather side. With overtones at D#6, D7, A7.
