Antique Lingam Singing Bowl.  Notes: Eb3 & Bb4 (Solar Plexus & Crown Chakras)
Weight 1.24 kilos (2 lb 11 ¾ oz).   Size 25 x 8 cm (9 ¾ x 3 ¼ inches) 

 

This extremely rare large antique Lingam Singing Bowl is believed to date from the 17th Century and ranks among my all-time top 5 lingams collected over 35 years.  It has the rarest shallow low profile form, and with a diameter of 9 ¾ inches is one of the largest lingams I have ever seen.  

 

Lingams serve a ritual and ceremonial purpose and are the rarest of all antique singing bowls.  Condition, age, size, shape and sound quality are what makes this bowl so special, and so expensive!

 

 

It has an even sheered lip and a superb lingam at its centre, surrounded and defined by several sets of concentric circles. Underneath there is a deep centrally placed navel or yoni.

 

 

This ancient bowl has two excellent voices, both of which are quite close to perfect pitch.  The fundamental note is a third octave Eb (159Hz) when struck with a padded mallet or played atound the rim with a suede ringer.  The rim note changes to a middle Bb (468-70Hz) with a wooden ringer.

 

The structural condition of this rare bowl is exceptional for its age, and it has the most beautiful aged patina with the look and feel of great antiquity and purpose.

 

A wonderful museum quality example of this rare ritual and ceremonial singing bowl form, the like of which you won’t see again!

 

A Tibetan silk brocade bowl cushion, a padded striker, and several ringers are all included in the price.
