Antique Manipuri Singing & Fountain Bowl.  C4 (256Hz) Root Chakra
Weight  1 lb 14 oz (847g).   19.5 x 6.5 cm (approx. 7 ¾ x 2 ½ inches)

 

This is a large antique Manipuri Singing Bowl with an excellent middle octave C fundamental (254/5Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer. A hard striker or wooden ringer brings out a powerful fifth octave Fż5 (732Hz).

 

This is a top quality Manipuri bowl, heavy for its size, with extra-thick and regular walls and an excellent grooved lip that sets this bowl apart from the vast majority of other Manipuri bowls.  It is smooth inside and out, and has a golden bronze colour.  The outer wall has 6 decorative incised lines forming a collar below the rim, and the basin has a pair of circles at its centre.

 

This old bowl is in excellent structural condition and is attractive, clean, and virtually free of stains.

 

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

 

Listen: (3 struck notes with a padded mallet, 3 with a hard one, and 1 played note with a suede ringer)
