SUBU ARII/ARW: Horns of MITHUNS

SUBU ARII/ARW: Horns of MITHUNS
*****************************
After completion of MURUNG rituals, the horns of mithuns are dried and preserved. These preserved horns (Subu arii) are the trophies for MURUNG performer(specially for the menfolk). In Apatani tradition MITHUNS are counted as one's assets. More the numbers of horns, more wealthy is the family.
