I went to Israel in 2014. One of the items I purchased was a Ram’s Horn, Shofar. I quickly became unpopular of the other group members traveling with me, because I was constantly learning how to blow that horn.
I then decided recently to try my hand at carving this instrument. It is a very hard material. I have broken several X-Acto blades in the process, so I have gone to better carving knives. This is going to be a long process. I started working on this in September 2018, and I guess it will take me about a year.
This will have the 7 Trumpets of Revelation, found in Revelation 8 – 9, 11. I have towards the top an angel blowing his trumpet. Then, I will list all seven trumpets, showing the judgment that was to come.
Of course, the ram’s horn is hollow, and has a translucent quality to it, so lighting is a fun factor in displaying the work so far. These are some progress photos.
