Large Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with sharp artwork

9259 Large Extra Thick Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with sharp artwork

Large extra thick Manipuri with sharp artwork and a two color exterior. The bowl is black below the exterior rim circles except on high spots where the brassy color comes through. The heavy mass of this bowl is directed as much to tactile vibrations as sound. It really shakes your hand with its rather solid bass. The audible sustain is mostly overtone. Fine harmony and ok longevity. The heavy sharp rim takes the biggest stick, leather side only. The bass can be spun, again with lots of its power going into your hand. The overtone comes off the rim most easily. With overtones at B4, A#5.
