Antique Lingam Singing Bowl. Notes G4 & C6 (Throat & Root Chakras)

Weight 721 grams (1 lb 9 ½ oz). Size 15.5 x 6 cm (6 ¼ x 2 ¼ inches)

 

This rare antique Lingam Singing Bowl is very much a one-of-a-kind and is believed to date from the 18th Century.  Although quite a small bowl it has thick walls and is relatively heavy for its size.   It has a fairly low profile and smooth walls that slightly turn out towards the rim.  It has a grooved lip, a neat pointed golden lingam surrounded by raised circles at its centre but, unusually, no navel underneath.  There are decorative bands at intervals down the inside of the bowl, and also encircling the outer rim, and on the outer wall the bottom of the bowl features a rare defining circle.

 

 

The fundamental note is a rather nice haunting middle octave G4 (382Hz) when struck or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to a penetrating high sixth octave C6 (1073Hz) with the G4 quietly droning in the background.

 

 

This rare and interesting bowl is in museum condition; structurally sound, and free of stains and blemishes.  It has the most wonderful aged patina and the look and feel of great antiquity.  Its attractive dark matt bronze colour is due to the uncleaned patina, but the playing edge and lingam reveal its underlying bright golden bronze.

 

 

A fabulous rare and very collectable Lingam bowl!

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion and a double-ended teak and suede ringer are included in the price.
