The word Kangling literally translates to "leg" (kang) "flute" (ling). It is the Tibetan name for a trumpet used for various chöd rituals, and is made from a human femur. The femur is typically acquired from a criminal, a person who died a violent death, or a respected teacher. The Kangling is played as a gesture of fearlessness, to summon hungry spirits and demons in order for them to satisfy their hunger and relieve their suffering.


This Kangling is beautifully decorated with silver embellishments on one end, and painted red on the other. It is an alluring piece, and in excellent condition.
