About Water Buffalo Horn    
Water buffaloes are domestic farm animals across Asia.  They are loved as a working member of the family and  valued as a tractor or family car.  Water buffaloes are never killed or harmed to just harvest their horns.  When a farmer's water buffalo dies at the end of a long and productive life, all parts, including the horns, are harvested and put to good use so nothing is ever wasted.

γίγνοντ’, οὐδέ τι πάντα τελείεται ἀνθρώποισι.

οἱ δὲ διὰ ξεστῶν κεράων ἔλθωσι θύραζε,
οἵ ῥ’ ἔτυμα κραίνουσι, βροτῶν ὅτε κέν τις ἴδηται.
ἀλλ’ ἐμοὶ οὐκ ἐντεῦθεν ὀΐομαι αἰνὸν ὄνειρον
ἐλθέμεν
Stranger, dreams verily are baffling and unclear of meaning, and in no wise do they find fulfilment in all things for men. For two are the gates of shadowy dreams, and one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those dreams that pass through the gate of sawn ivory deceive men, bringing words that find no fulfilment. But those that come forth through the gate of polished horn bring true issues to pass, when any mortal sees them ...
