Manipuri Singing Bowls are the shallowest of the singing bowl family. They can be thick or thin, plain or highly decorated, but all are characterized by their low profile and small rounded bottom. The rim is often subtly splayed. The lip may be plain and simple or, in thicker bowls, ornamented with symbols. The outer rim is nearly always decorated with multiple incised lines forming a collar. Most Manipuri have diameters ranging from 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20cm) , and high octave voices. Antique Manipuri bowls are rather pretty, easy to play, and the small examples are relatively inexpensive, and are often the first bowl purchased.
