This conch is larger than a human skull. When archaeologists saw the conch, they thought it was not an ordinary sea shell. There is a special type of carving in this conch. So it makes a great musical instrument. Archaeologists believe that the shell may have been used for fun or religious occasions many years ago. (Photo: Getty)


Philip Walter, director of the Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archeology of the Sorbonne University, said the shell was discovered in 1931, 90 years ago. It was then seen as a clove cup. A study on this was also published in the journal Science Advances. (Photo: Getty)


Walter says that in earlier times people used cups of cloves for joyous occasions. They were drinking in it. But this conch is somewhat different. Looks artistic. A closer inspection revealed that it was not a normal conch. It is a special type of instrument. (Photo: Getty)

According to Carole Fritz, a researcher at the French National Center for Scientific Research, it may be the oldest known instrument. For 90 years it was preserved only. Never played, but the best sound was heard when it was played. (Photo: Getty)


Archaeologists believe that the conch is slightly broken, as it has been in a cave for several thousand years. But it has a strong bottom. Still completely safe. When Phillips Walter scanned the conch CT, human artwork was found inside it. (Photo: Getty)


Phillips states that the top of this conch would have been intentionally cut. The curved part of the conch is made very finely. It is believed that Magdalenio may have used a viscous material in it. It can be wax or clay. (Photo: Getty)


Phillips states that red pigments have been found in many parts of this conch. They were drawn with red dots. Many fingerprint-like marks have also been found on it. A huge bison painting was also made inside. Which has now been erased but its signs remain. (Photo: Getty)


“We called a professional horn player to play this conch,” Phillips said. Because he feared that he would be harmed while playing. But when he played it, the sound coming out of it was amazing. There were three musical notes. C, C-Sharp and D. (Photo: Getty)
