The Pututu has been used from immemorial times all over the world. The pre-Incan civilization of Moche worshipped the sea and often depicted conch shells in their art. Quetzalcoatl, the Mexican god of wind and learning, wears around his neck the "wind breastplate" ehecailacocozcatl, made of a conch shell. In Buddhism, the conch shell has been incorporated as one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols. The god of preservation in Hinduism, Vishnu, is said to hold a special conch, Panchajanya, that represents life, as it has come out of life-giving waters.

They have been discovered in burials and archaeological sites throughout the world and potentially symbolized patterns witnessed in hurricanes, dust devils, seashells, and whirlpools which were elemental forces that had meaning in most ancients religious mythology.

They were used to announce and convoke the coming of special spiritual events, used as musical instruments, a way of healing and of therapy. All thanks to the spiral shape of their sound, paralleling an expansion like the Bing Bang in the macro cosmos, and of our own auditory system in the human micro cosmos.
