Tibetan Magical Bronze Bowl
Very unusual. Each bowl is hand-cast from bronze, with a green patina with either finely etched dragons in the bottom of the large bowl, or a fish pattern in the smaller one. Known as Lung Ding, it is said that this basin is the source of all myths about the Feng Shui fountains. The basin with it's classic beauty first appears in China's Han Dynasty. The bowls are tuned similarly to singing bowls. If you pour clean water into the basin and rub the brass 'ears'- the handles with your hands, sweet tones will be heard from the basin itself and four fountains of water will leap from the surface of the water. These bowls are tuned similarly to singing bowls, and were originally used for meditation. If you haven't seen these before, it's because they are relatively rare in the United States. This is a very handsome item that of course can be used for many purposes. The bowls are authentic reproductions of a meditation water bowl that dates to the 4th century B.C.
Pour clean water into the basin and rub the brass 'ears' (handles) with your hands. Sweet tones will be heard from the basin itself and small fountains of water will spring up fro the surface of the water.
