Conch shell horns are blown during rituals in many Buddhist traditions. Though Tibetan conch shells are often decorated with silver mounts but few are carved. Which makes this Nepalese example a highly collectible piece for its finely ornate relief, which featuring a large lotus flower in the center, circumvented by a frieze of petals overlaid with eight auspicious symbols, including a lotus flower, a dharmacakra, two goldfish, an endless knot, a banner, a vase, a parasol, and a conch, all framed inside a circular ribbon of stylized waves, above a two rows lotus flower near the base of the conch. This aged conch is a Feng Shui emblem for good fortune and harmony.
