Pierced Ankole Horn Hurricane
Ankle Horn hurricanes.
Crafted of ethically sourced cow horn, this hurricane is hand-pierced to filter light in the loveliest way. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. This natural hurricane was hand carved on a lathe, shaped and molded at high temperatures, meticulously sanded, and then polished for a smooth and shiny finish.
Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, this hurricane is truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.
Each hurricane is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Each is perforated with a slightly different design, but will look similar to the photos shown. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.
