Etched Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with fluttering and dancing tones

8895 Etched Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with fluttering and dancing tones

Adorned Manipuri with muted design features inside and out. Clear inner circles and rim punches are contrasted by the worn exterior design. The color is clear and bright. Really interesting listening bowl, right off the strike you hear tones that flutter and dance. Instead of simplifying as the sound continues new notes seem to come to the surface. Finally at the end of the good sustain you’re left with a single fluttering note. While the edge is a bit rough it is fast to volume, then the long sustain takes over. With overtones at F#5, E6, C7.
