About Horn & Bone Work

It is a unique art of creating art forms by carving into animal bones, with bones acquired by legal means once the animals are dead. It can result in the ornamentation of a bone, or the creation of a figure or making of aesthetically pleasing as well as utility items. It has been practised by a variety of world cultures, and since the ban on ivory, it has become a cheaper and legal substitute for it. The animal bone is collected from dead animals once the flesh has decomposed. The bones with the toughest make—like the hip and legs—are the ones usually used for handicraft purposes.
