This unique gong features Buddha Eyes and Om Mani Padme Hum mantra design taken from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Nepalese Singing Gongs are handmade from scratch from the same ‘bell-bronze’ alloy as antique Himalayan Singing Bowls, often recycled from broken bowls (when available).
Nepalese Singing Gongs are made using traditional techniques handed down by gong-makers for thousands of years. The method called annealing involves the repeated heating and hand-pounding of the metal alloy until the desired shape and size is met. Once the desired shape and size is met, the surface of the gong is finished and hand-etched by master artisans of Patan, Nepal. Each gong features any one of four Tibetan Buddhist designs, Buddha Eyes, Double Dorje, Om Mani Padme Hung Mantra and Conch Shell; also the occasional custom design.
When available Singing Gongs come in both Chau (Tam Tam) and Wind (Feng) styles with size options of 60cm, 70cm, 80cm & 100cm diameters.
