Antique Naga Singing & Healing Bowl. F#4 & Bb5 Notes (Heart & Crown Chakras)
Weight 1 lb 1oz (484g). 12.5 x 8 cm (approx. 5 x 3 ¼ inches)
This small to medium size antique Naga Singing and Healing Bowl has an incredible voice. The struck note is an excellent mid octave F# that’s close to concert pitch; but the rim note is simply spectacular! This is a stunning fifth octave Bb that is powerful, piercing and penetrating…with a pulsating sustain that goes on and on. This is undoubtedly a superior singing bowl.
It is solidly constructed and has classic Naga proportions. It has nicely incised decorative banding below the outer rim and is clean and in excellent structural condition. A double-ended teak and suede ringer is included in the price.
I totally recommend this bowl…buy it now before someone else does!
Listen: (2 struck notes and 2 played notes with long sustains)
Note: There is a small irregular area inside the basin of this bowl, slightly off centre, that looks a little different from the surrounding metal. I have seen this in other Naga bowls but have no definitive explanation to offer. It could have resulted from an impurity in the metal alloy, an un-melted piece of copper, tin or lead, or perhaps a blister or air bubble that was filled during or immediately after the forging process, I simply don’t know. But in every case I have come across it has been confined to the inside of the bowl and cannot be seen or felt on the outside. I mention this simply because it is there, and you will notice it on close inspection. However, this is not a damaged bowl that has been repaired, and there is no discernable impact on the quality of its sound, which is amazing.
