Triton shell horn

A Rotuman triton shell horn, equivalent of the Fijian 'davui', used for ceremony, dance and gatherings. It is blown through the hole in the end. In Fiji, it was much more common to blow through a hole in the side of the shell, however, this end-blown style was also common in the west and highlands of Viti Levu. From Noatau, Rotuma.
