Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with peaceful subtle activity

9568 Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with peaceful subtle activity

Manipuri with rich hammermark patina and traces of formerly extensive artwork. A warbling primary tone mixes with steadier higher notes which eventually become the center of audibility. Ok sustain. Surprising off the rim with leather with a strong steady overtone, great volume quite easily. Any wand will play the next high. Better rim than mallet longevity. With overtones at C#5, C#6, G#6.
