Thin Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a resonant complex texture

9493 Thin Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a resonant complex texture

Tiny Manipuri with visible but worn art made easier to see by a rich chocolate brown patina. Deeply resonant sound filled with initial harmonious texture. As the tone continues the complexity barely simplifies, instead it coalesces around 3 distinct low-mid-high notes. Rough rim, will paly a bit with simple wood, a bowl to buy for its luscious mallet play. With overtones at F5, F6, C7.
