Bone carving

Bone carving is the
act of creating art
forms by carving into
animal bones and often
includes the carving of
antlers and horns. It can
result in the
ornamentation of a
bone, or the creation of
a figure. It has been
practiced by a variety of
world cultures,
sometimes as a
cheaper, and recently a
legal, substitute for
ivory carving. It was
important in prehistoric
art, with notable
figures like the
Swimming Reindeer
(antler), and many of
the Venus figurines.
The Anglo-Saxon Franks
casket is a bone casket
imitating earlier ivory
ones.
Bone was also used by
artists and craftsmen
to try out their designs,
especially by
metalworkers. Such
pieces are known as
"trial-pieces".
