The transfiguration of an object alters its functionality.

Once an African Horn, purposed to summon the tribe.
Transformed into a plastic Vuvuzella, producing intense noise, functions as an act of protest or casting misfortune to a rival.
Metamorphoses into bronze candle sticks, a silent symbol for luck and gathering people.

The same object, speechless, still.
Returning to be what it never was.
