Antique Bell Lingam Singing Bowl.  Note: E4 (Solar Plexus Chakra)
Weight 572 grams (1 lb 1 ¼ oz).   Size 20 x 9.5 cm (8 x 3 ¾ inches)

 

This is a rare antique globular Lingam Singing Bowl with a sheered lip, a pointed lingam at its centre surrounded by circles, and a deep yoni or navel underneath.  The decorative bands covering its entire outer surface are an interesting and unusual feature.

 

 

The fundamental note is a third octave F#3 (183Hz) with a powerful C5 harmonic (528Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to a powerful concert pitch B5 (987Hz) with a wooden ringer.  The unique shape of this old bowl results in a sound quality unlike any other.  I particularly like the way the sound appears to form inside the bowl…and once it gets going it becomes directional and escapes from its open mouth like a genie in a bottle! 

 

 

The structural condition of this bowl is excellent.  It has a nice aged patina, and is clean and is virtually free of stains.

 

Lingam bowls are extremely uncommon, and globular Lingams like this are among the rarest of all bowls.

 

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

 

Listen: (3 struck notes and 2 played notes, suede ringer then wood)
