The shofar is the ram’s horn ritually blown as an expression of both warning and freedom. This hollow 12-foot stainless steel fabrication, constructed from equilateral triangles, is acoustically tuned. On holidays an actual ram's horn is blown through the mouth piece, and the shofar's piercing sound is amplified.
