Antique Tibetan Thadobati Singing Bowl. E5 Note (Solar Plexus Chakra)
Weight 15 oz (424g). 12 x 5.5 cm (approx. 4 ½ x 2 ¼ inches)
This small antique Thadobati singing bowl probably dates from the 19th century and is unusually heavy for its size, with walls that are twice as thick as usual. It has been very well forged and is in good clean structural condition.
There was once a decorative band of sun motifs, punched dots within circles, encircling the outer wall below the rim, but the circles have been worn away with the passage of time, leaving just the deeper dots in evidence.
The fundamental note is a high fifth octave E whether struck or played around the rim with a wooden ringer.
This old bowl Thadobati singing bowl has the look and feel of antiquity.
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
Listen: (2 struck notes and 1 played note)
