Antique Manipuri Singing Bowl. A5 (880Hz) Third Eye Chakra
Weight 0 lb 9 ¾ oz. (274 grams). Size 14 x 4.5 cm (5 ½ x 1 ¾ inches)
A lovely small antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with lots of interesting decorative features. The fundamental note is a perfect pitch fifth octave A (880Hz) when struck or played around the rim.
This bowl has lived a long life and some of its many decorative features have been worn down through use over the years. These include a circle of suns (punched dots surrounded by circles) at its centre and all around the lip…now just the dots remain.
The outer wall features a series of ritual gashes around the rim, and a 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.
