Engraved Lord's Supper bowl by Dewfooter Engraved Lord's Supper bowl by Dewfooter
Sound-bowl from Nepal, engraved in Celto-Germanic-Byzantine style and Greek inscription for the Lord's Supper.
The idea for this came from the Gundestrup Cauldron. I don't think I'm going to do the inside as well though... :D

Here photographed with sketchbook.

Looks like you did quite a bit of research to get this right. It's beautiful work.

Thanks. I did study Celtic and Thracian artwork for this. The Germanic influence is not prominent, though the runestaves on the cross are, obviously.

That's pretty darned cool! Does it still ring well after the carving?

Oh yes. The sound has not suffered one bit.

That said, this ís a lathed bowl, not a hand-beaten one, so the sound isn't great to begin with. It's also brass and not bronze.

Yeah, the last couple I found were turned brass, so the sounds was too "bright". I have a really huge one- and it sounds wonderful, both as a gong and as a rolling chime.

That's right. Mine has a nasty 'ring' to it, that hand-beaten ones do not have.

Yeah, the structure of the crystals id very different between them, for sure. Hence the nicer tone.
