Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl. Bb5 (908Hz) Crown Chakra
Weight 0 lb 10 ¾ oz. (304 grams). Size 13.5 x 4.5 cm (5 ¼ x 1 ¾ inches)
A lovely small antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with lots of interesting decorative features. The fundamental note is a good fifth octave Bb (908Hz) when struck, and Bb (915Hz) when played around the rim.
This bowl has many interesting decorative features including a circle of suns (punched dots surrounded by circles) at its centre and all around the lip, the latter now just dots. The outer wall features a series of ritual gashes around the rim, and a nice band of suns.
This bowl has fine smooth walls inside and out and is a pleasure to hold and play. It is in good clean structural condition. A ringer is included in the price.
