Snowflake Horn Ornament

This eco-friendly handmade horn ornament is made from natural discarded and recycled cow horn crafted by Peruvian artisans. We designed with the artisan based on their technique, tradition and tools experience. After boiled and melted, each unique piece has been hand cut, molded, carved and polished to bring out the natural horn color and texture in a brilliant finish.
