The original medicine horn which is gave me the idea for Torak’s medicine horn. This one is made of antelope horn, with a wooden stopper and base. My aunt, who lived on a game reserve in Zimbabwe, sent it to me for Christmas when I was about nine years old. Her note read: “This belonged to a sangoma (witch doctor). Don’t sniff what’s inside, it used to contain powdered snake.” Too late, I already had!
