Sonorous and Resonant Antique Unique Singing Bowl with straight sides

9866 Sonorous and Resonant Antique Unique Singing Bowl with straight sides

Unusual flat bottomed bowl with straight sides. It is on the thick side, especially near the rim. Uneven dark patina with some ever widening circles etched into the bottom – now quite worn. Not a standard style at all, one of a kind. Nonetheless an old bowl made with the special singing metal. Sonorous and melodious this unusual bowl has a uniquely resonant soundscape. Peaceful, almost dreamy. Very good harmony and even better sustain. The peaceful sounds just slide off the rim. Leather is smooth and easy for the low notes and even some of the highs. A massive yew wand sings part of the second overtone. Unusual bowl with a wonderful soundscape. With overtones at G4, , , .
