Singing bowls (also known as Tibetan Singing Bowls, rin gongs, Himalayan bowls or suzu gongs) are a type of bell, specifically classified as a standing bell. Rather than hanging inverted or attached to a handle, singing bowls sit with the bottom surface resting, and the rim vibrates to produce sound characterized by a fundamental frequency (first harmonic) and usually two audible harmonic overtones (second and third harmonic). This handmade bowl is hand cast in Patan just outside of Kathmandu Nepal. Hand painted and finished by an artist with 14K gold. The mantra of the Medicine Buddha wraps around the outside and an image of Medicine Buddha is inside. 5 inches around.
