      Are you sure it's a horn they look like teeth to me maybe some sort of strange fish or such
    2. Zowie Zowie, 6 years ago
      Looking at the picture on the right it looks like a eye to me
    3. stingertbx stingertbx, 6 years ago
      my wife thought maybe a fish... If it is I'm never swimming again that's for sure !
      horn part is very hard teeth are just creepy Thanks for helping Zowie
      I hope someone out there has seen this type of thing before

      EEERK! Awfully interesting, neither won't bath in wild anymore ;-)
    5. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 6 years ago
      I think the teeth are applied-(jammed in crookedly.) Fish needed an orthodonist!!-surely NOT fish teeth. Maybe a shamin (sp), Indian item--does it rattle?
      Would frighten away those evil spirits, wouldn't it???
    6. stingertbx stingertbx, 6 years ago
      PCC & kyra... Funny !
      It does not rattle.
      I got it from a guy that bought some cars out of storage lockers but the deal was he had to clean out the whole storage locker so he did and had tons of stuff spread across his property so I really cannot find info from original owner ( passed away )
      I was thinking Vintage Native American also.
      Thanks for all the info if you have any more ideas plz let me know !

      My grandson is part Apache--His grandfather might have a clue. I'll get back to you.
    8. Zowie Zowie, 6 years ago
      I'm glad I may have been able to help in some way at least it's got people looking & talking you may just get your answer it is strange
    9. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 6 years ago
      Of course!! An alien being! Wouldn't it be funny, if............!!
    10. Zowie Zowie, 6 years ago
      Aliens will do that lol
    11. stingertbx stingertbx, 6 years ago
      ALIENS ! COULD BE...
      It's even creepy to hold it or point the teeth towards someone. Maybe it has special powers ?... and I can Finally take over the world !

      But I'm to afraid to try that, so don't worry earthlings.
    12. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Perhaps triggerfish jaws mounted on a horn?

      My daughter Linda, just walked in--- she has a staggering I.Q. agrees with with Kyratango.
    14. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 6 years ago
      SO Ka-REEEP-EEE. Makes one really want to scream!!! It's awesome tho and even tho can't stand looking at it, it makes you want to. What the heck is it???
    15. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 6 years ago
      It makes me feel very uncomfortable, and even quesy. My daughter says: "It is a fetish,made in various forms by Indian tribes." Still, I SAY,Indian tribes deal with "spirits". Maybe has more "attached" to it, than an old ouija board! Mauvais esprit?
    16. Zowie Zowie, 6 years ago
      Hi all morning or evening to all were ever you are. I just followed kyratango post & I would say she has hit it on the head. I'm glad I had a slight recognition about a program I had seen quite a few years back. Thanks for finding that picture I never gave it a thought as I had no idea if I was correct or not & dreamt it.
    17. stingertbx stingertbx, 6 years ago
      I've been doing some more research still cannot totally narrow it down to Triggerfish teeth mounted on horn ?

      The moderators changed the category to (visual arts / sculptures) wierd ? Oh well
      Triggerfish teeth mounted on horn is defiantly the closest yet...

      Thanks,
      Everybody !

      The dentalstatus of this thing makes me think of sheepshead fish that is caught along the gulf coast. Looks like wodoo.....

      Hi
      stingertbx
      That thing, remind me the Allien in the first Rippley Scott Movie,
      When the guy comeback from the big mother space ship, with something stick on his face, later when he feel better(he thing) start to eat some meat, and the small allien coming out of his chest, creepy part of the movie for sure, but this little alien look alike, same teets and look.
