End-blown horn. A brown, undecorated cow horn, curved in a very slight anticlockwise helix from the player's perspective. A ring is carved out of the surface, encircling the proximal end. The tip of the horn has been removed and a cane mouthpiece inserted into the circular hole. The proximal end of the mouthpiece is cut at an oblique angle to form an elliptical rim.
