This large antique Himalayan Ultabati Singing Bowl has a low and vibrant second octave A2 (107hz) fundamental struck note, and a superb G#2 when played around the rim.
Ultabati bowls have a very distinctive caldron-like form with fine walls, a scooped or flared neck and an out-turned downward-sloping lip. This one also has decorative circles at its centre, and finely incised lines around the shoulder of the outer wall. This bowl is structurally sound. It has a beautiful golden bronze colour with attractive hammer markings.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and a ringer are all included in the price.
