Natural Kudu Horn, Silver Plated, Gold Plated
Size: 20cm x 62cm / 7.9” x 24.4”
This graceful and delicately curving instrument is made from the antler of a kudu, a species of antelope native to Africa. Used for centuries by Yemenite Jews to fulfill the traditional horn blowing ritual performed on the Jewish New Year, they eventually brought the exotic horns to Israel, when they instantly became popular. Far longer and more tightly spiraled than its European ram’s horn counterpart, this spectacular instrument produces a powerful and mighty sound unlike any you have ever heard before. Skillfully bound in luxurious pure silver and gold by the world-renowned silversmiths of Hazorfim, three textured silver cuffs plate this exceptional horn, which are adorned with a stunningly detailed rendition of three men in long coats praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, making this unique masterpiece a mesmerizing masterpiece. An unforgettable and selfless gift to give someone you love, this majestic horn will also make a radiant and eye-catching addition to liven up your home and enhance your life. The perfect treasure to appreciate for lifetimes, this fascinating instrument is well worth the investment.
Hazorfim began with three Jewish-Romanian silversmiths who sought to preserve the dying tradition of handcrafting silver in the face of global industrialization. Separated by World War II, the three artisans escaped Romania and eventually made their way to Israel after the establishment of the State where they were reunited. In the early 1950’s, they decided to continue their dream of producing quality, handmade products out of pure silver and gold and opened up a workshop which they named Hazorfim. Reviving ancient techniques and methods of metalworking, Hazorfim now employs hundreds of artists, each of whom is an expert in their field. Around 300 new and original silver pieces are produced by Hazorfim yearly, with each one having gone through meticulous scrutiny from the ‘dream’ stage, to designing, to the actual constructing of the product by skilled artisans. The exquisite works produced by Hazorfim have been sold all over the world, and have decorated the homes of the famous and powerful such asGeorge Bush, Ronald Reagan, Vladimir Putin and King Hussein of Jordan. Magnificent beyond compare, each item sold by Hazorfim is a unique and flawless treasure of unsurpassed excellence. Don’t hesitate any longer to enjoy a spectacular masterpiece that is guaranteed to become a family heirloom for generations.
