Deep Mirror Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with inscription and sweet sound

9264 Deep Mirror Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with inscription and sweet sound

Thick brilliantly polished Manipuri with simple classical lines. It has a smooth as silk feel, from the many hand polishings that have imparted a deep mirror finish. There is a short long ago etched inscription below the deeply etched exterior lines. A rare find. A solid fundamental and barely pulsing overtone lead this sweet soundscape which sings throughout a very good sustain. There are plenty of other notes providing background support. While basic wood will spin the rim it is much easier and more satisfying with tiny wands – tulipwood or ebony for the second high, yew for the overtone. With overtone at G#5. Solfeggio – LA 852 Hz Overtone.
