Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonance and complexity

9930 Exceptional Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with resonance and complexity

Bright Manipuri, one whose polish has faded. This bowl has the remains of complex artwork including deeply placed rim dots, the remains of what were once full circles. Beautifully balanced with a rich mix of resonance and complexity this exceptional bowl has a subtly profound presence. A bowl to feel. Premium harmony and very good longevity. Fine wood rim play, smooth with volume. However teasing out partials with the rim doesn’t do the soundscape justice. For once the whole is greater than the isolated parts. Rated exceptional for a somewhat ineffable sonic effect. With overtones at E5, , , . Solfeggio – FA 639 Hz Overtone.
