Why this is special:
Transforming bone and horn into objects of use is a time-honored African tradition. The raw material comes from Ankole cows, native to Uganda and raised for food. The horn, which can weigh 1600 pounds and span 8', is boiled until malleable and shaped into handsome wares like this one.
