Thick Adorned Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with

9517 Thick Adorned Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with

Bright Manipuri with super sharp interior artwork. This is a rare example of a clear five pointed star inside a set of punch circles. There is a bit of stain letting you know it is an antique however the rough nature of the construction and artwork leads me to believe the bowl is less than 100 years old – or made by an apprentice. A strong rapidly fluttering primary tone is the strongest note accompanied by a solid overtone that plays in the background. Lots of metal in this bowl gives a base for an excellent sustain. Good off the rim with wood – simple plays the overtone and a wand the next high. Good rim longevity. With overtones at F#5, F#6, C#7.
