I have had this for years. I'm not even sure where I got it from. I wish I could say I went to Tibet for it... Nope! Someday. :)

Well this is what it is...

The horn was a part of a traditional Buddhist ensemble and was often used to call Lamas to worship. This musical instrument was used to call monks to worship and also was used to invoke water and rain.

This horn is a sign of good luck in Tibetian and Chinese culture and stands for the absence of all evil as an attribute, symbolizing the glory of all holy men.
