|^I like the look of the deep rivets on this one, too.|

As for the aesthetic design of the snow/ice, I stumbled upon pictures of blue alabaster that I thought were potentially cool designs. The ice (and/or snow) could sport a random array of blue swirly lines, or blue lines that could correspond with the “hardened clay” look. Better still, we could use the blue alabaster lines to create a circular line pattern following the ram’s horn so the mountain looks like an actual ram’s horn.

Hopefully this helps!
