Large Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with outstanding longevity

8898 Large Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with outstanding longevity

Very large extra thick Manipuri with two clear inner circles. The bowl has original patina inside to offset the circles. A fast pulsing low, rapidly moving mid tone and singing high give this bowl an energizing effect even with the fairly low bass tone. Harmony is good, longevity is outstanding, a combination of thick walls and an open shape. Powerful off the rim, primarily the D5 overtone. Smooth with leather or massive wand. I’d go for the wand, much easier to get going. With overtones at D5, D6, A6, D#7.
