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 of a very simple design, with both ends covered in an unknown type of skin. It is an alluring piece, and in excellent condition.
