Antique Lingam Singing Bowl.  Notes: Eb4 & A5 (Solar Plexus & Third Eye Chakras)
Weight 537 grams (1 lb 3 oz).   Size 15.5 x 7.5 cm (6 x 3 inches)

 

This is a rare medium-size antique Lingam Singing Bowl in excellent structural and clean condition.  It has a lovely curved form with a rounded bottom, a nice lingam at its centre surrounded by circles, and a matching yoni or navel underneath.  It has a sheered and grooved lip and a wide decorative band around the outer rim bordered by lines and tiny dots. 

 

 

The decorative band contains a faint inscription, and has a smooth surface that contrasts nicely with the mottled hammered surface below.

 

 

The fundamental note is a forth octave Eb4 (304Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played around the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to a near perfect pitch fifth octave A5 (886 - 880Hz) with a wooden ringer.

 

An attractive, interesting, and rare old bowl!

 

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