Antique Tibetan Thadobati Singing Bowl. C5 Note (Root Chakra)
Weight 1 lb 1 ½ oz (499g). 12.5 x 5.5 cm (approx. 5 x 2 ¼ inches)
This small antique Thadobati singing bowl probably dates from the 19th century and is exceptionally heavy for its size, with walls that are twice as thick as usual. It has been very well forged, and has a couple of deeply incised concentric circles at its centre, and a band of decorative dots encircling the outer rim.
The fundamental note is a high fifth octave C whether struck or played around the rim with a wooden ringer.
This old bowl Thadobati singing bowl has the look and feel of antiquity, and is in excellent condition for its age.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
