>honk!We were sorting through Tyoma’s “odd box” of strange things that Mom compiled for Tyoma when we came across this winding/drinking horn. My Dad picked it up for me when he was in Russia in the 90’s and I’d almost forgotten about it. Since I know that you are giant nerds, just like me, some trivia: an animal horn that’s used as a drinking cup is a rhyton. And when used as a bugle it’s a shofar (Jewish) or dungchen(Tibetian). 🙂
