Weight 1 lb 4 ½ oz. (583 grams). Size 15.5 x 8 cm (6 x 3 inches)
Rare golden medium-size Antique Lingam Singing Bowl with two concert pitch voices. It has gently curved walls, grooved lip, decorative dots and bands encircling the rim, a neat lingam at its centre and a yoni/navel underneath.
The fundamental note is a concert pitch middle D (294/6Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a fifth ocatve concert pitch G#5 (830Hz) with a wooden ringer. This particularly attractive antique lingam singing bowl has a golden bronze colour, and is structurally sound and free of stains and blemishes.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a ringer are included in the price.
Listen: (3 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede then wood ringer)
