Horn - Tibet

Purchased in Katmandu, Nepal, 1968

From Graciela's Notes

On the high plateau of Tibet, Buddhist monks use this collapsible horn to call their fellow monks to prayer. This is also done in Nepal. It is made of copper and brass. Bought in Katmandu, Nepal during my Christmas trip in 1968.
