Antique Singing Bowl. Notes: B4 & F6 (Crown & Heart Chakras)

Weight: 494 grams (1 lb 1 oz).  Size: 13 x 7 cm (5 x 2 ¾  inches)

 

This is a fine example of a small cup Lingam Singing Bowl from the 19th century.  Its wall is a little thicker and heavier than usual and it has a sheered lip with tiny decorative cuts encircling the outer rim.  There is a neat Lingam surrounded by circles at it centre, and a matching navel or yoni underneath. 

 

 

The fundamental note is a perfect pitch middle octave B4 (493Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. The rim note changes to a high sixth octave F6 (1390Hz) with a wooden ringer.  It is very responsive and easy to play.

 

 

It is in excellent structural condition despite a small flaked area underneath which is commonly found on old bowls and is of no consequence.  It is clean, unstained, and has a wonderful aged patina with the look and feel of antiquity.

 

A very attractive small Lingam with a super voice!

 

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