Large Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl with ceremonial authority

3063 Large Antique Thadobati Lingam Singing Bowl with ceremonial authority

Extra large, thick and heavy Thadobati lingam with clear artwork and brassy patina. This ceremonial bowl likely dates back to the 15-16th centuries. Under the patina the bowl has a bright golden hue which could indicate some precious metal content. It has a broad rim, deep etching and a tall lingam surrounded by widely spaced hand etched circles Powerful and penetrating this very special bowl sings with ceremonial authority. The tone is solid and pure. A fleeting high overtone starts in accompaniment but the bowl wants to go with the primary tone. Over time a slow gentle periodicity emerges, more to add to the peacefulness of the nominally high pitched soundscape. Fine sustain. Premium harmony. The rim is just made for long leather play, the recording is a continuous spin then lift off. The bowl is so heavy and thick you can work around whatever isn’t smooth on the rim without hearing it a bit. Genuine Thadobati lingams are rare, ones with premium sound rarer still. We acquired this bowl in 2012 and have rotated it out of our private collection. Great piece for the right collector. With overtones at D#6, D7.
