These horn earrings are inspired by the Tsuba, the guards of Japanese swords. The animal figured here evokes a heron with outspread wings. At first functional and full, the tsuba quickly became purely decorative like this one. Many collections exist all around the world, including that of the Guimet Museum in Paris.
