M+A's sustainably harvested water buffalo horn is hand selected for it's unique markings and colorations, and then gets sorted; it's carved out from the solid part of a horn after soaking it in water. It's then heated and formed by skilled artisans.
Our hand formed votives in translucent fawn and zebra are both special. The fawn is mostly a warm, tawny diaphanous color with some deeper, more opaque spots. The zebra is just the opposite: mostly opaque except for surprising and delightful threads of transparency. Place them both a light and enjoy the natural beauty glowing within!

Horn being a natural organic material responds to heat and moisture. Do not place open flame in contact with the horn's surface. It will burn and smell like burnt hair and it'll stink up the place and you'll ruin it! But do enjoy with a metal cupped tea light. Don't leave an open flame unattended.
