The snailhorn is a wind instrument. (skrt. Skankha, tib. Dung Kar, jap. 陣貝, jinkai, 法螺貝, horagai)
It is from the shell of a snail manufactured, the tip is detached. Often the snail shell by engraving or ornamented metal versions. Sometimes it is also a mouthpiece of metal used. With hindsight bubbles - similar to a horn or a trumpet - creates a distinctive, penetrating tone. The snail horn is used in different cultures and different symbolic meanings.

    How dare you! This is some of the most vulgar sounds to ever touch my ears. Far gone we are from the sweet symphonies of the Aberdeen eight and here we are, with this abomination. I will be writing a formal complaint to the global elites that you uphold with your wicked antics. I will make a personal mandate to see your downfall.
