Weight 424 grams (0 lb 14 ½ oz). Size 16.5 x 5 cm (6 ½ x 2 inches)
This superior quality medium size antique Manipuri Singing Bowl is perfectly proportioned. It has a slightly flared wall and features a wide triangulated grooved lip. There are circles at its centre and multiple decorative bands encircling the outer rim.
The fundamental note is a middle octave E4 (327/8Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a wooden ringer. A fifth octave B5 (274Hz) harmonic is also subtly present.
This lovely Manipuri bowl is in excellent structural condition. It is clean and free of blemishes and has a bright golden bronze colour.
It would make a very nice gift!
A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
