Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a fluttering and singing duet

9509 Tiny Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with a fluttering and singing duet

Tiny Manipuri with a long clear inscription added long after the bowl was made. The bowl is quite smooth from long use. After a sharp metallic burst this bowl quickly settles into a fluttering and singing duet. Ok longevity. Being a light bowl this one can be hard to hold while spinning the rim. The sound is there given the technique, overtone and next high note up. Fine price for a bowl with an inscription. With overtones at G5, F#6, D7, B7.
