Five Buddha Singing Bowl SetTibetan singing bowls are known for their mystical qualities and are multi-phonic instruments, producing several harmonic overtones at the same time.

Bowls may vary slightly in design and size as these are hand crafted. The set includes a satin brocade ring cushion and a wooden striker. Made in Nepal.
