Rare Antique Jambati Singing Bowl. G#2 Note (Throat Chakra)
Weight 8 lb 13 oz. (3.68 Kilos). 34.5 x 17 cm (approx. 13 ¾ x 6 ¾ inches)
This is an exceptional and outstanding antique Jambati singing bowl of the highest quality…the result of an ongoing bowl search for the most magnificent, majestic and musical of singing bowls from the Himalayas. This spectacular bowl would not be out of place in a temple, and would sit comfortably among the finest collections anywhere in the world.
This is a really huge and heavy bowl with a massive presence. It has a diameter of 13 ¾ inches and weighs almost 9 pounds. It has a deep full body, a wide triangulated lip, several boldly incised decorative bands that form a collar below the outer rim, and large concentric circles at its centre. It also benefits from an inscription between the bands of the collar.
The fundamental struck note is an incredibly beautiful low pulsating second octave G# that goes on and on. The note is virtually concert pitch G#2 when played around the rim with a heavy suede ringer.
This stunning old Jambati ticks all the boxes…great quality, good looks, excellent condition for its age with just a few minor blemishes as one would expect, and above all, a wonderful voice. I cannot speak more highly of it. This is a bowl that will be of particular interest to the serious collector or specialist practitioner.
A truly extraordinary and fabulous singing bowl!
Listen: (2 struck notes followed by 2 played notes, the second of which was hand-held, and finally a hand-held struck note)
