The Horn is Bison with curly maple plug and cap.
The cap is sealed and fixed with pine resin and Honey Locust thorns.
The finish of the horn is with bone beads, black bear fur, copper, sinew, red ocher, soot, and grease.
The strap is finger woven of nettle string and bone beads with a finish of soot, red ochre, and grease.

The horn is based on the False Creator from the Iroquois creation story.

I made this horn to match the .50 flintlock I posted in the Weapons
