Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with almost pristine artwork

9241 Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with almost pristine artwork

Very Large extra thick Manipuri with almost pristine artwork. This is a rare example of well preserved large Manipuri adorned with the full compliment of features. Especially unusual is the clear five pointed star inside, this is the first feature to wear away. Highly focused soundscape where the softly pulsing low and any highs drop out to leave an exceptionally solid C5 that plays with an excellent sustain. This is remarkable for mallet play such intense sustained focus. A great bowl to fall into one sound with. Rim play is entirely different from a mallet strike. Bass only with leather and a mix of overtones which emerge only with the particular grain of a vermillion wand. This bowl is an absolute show piece with remarkable mallet play. With overtones at C5, C6, G6.
