Shofar Mistake

Rabbi Natan Slifki, author of the monograph "Exotic Shofars - Halachic Aspects" post this illustration and comment on one of his websites:
My eldest child, aged nine, pointed out the mistake (I am so proud of her!) Can you spot it? I'm amazed at how many people I meet who have this misconception! (UPDATE: I am not referring to the fact that the head looks more like that of a deer than a ram!)

  1. Boy does that look weird! the illustrator has the horns attached at the wrong end. The horn is larger where it attaches to the animal's skull and then tapers to a point, which is usually curled. Good for Rabbi Slifki's daughter!
