Bone Carving is an old as civilisation itself. Even some of the oldest bone artefacts have decorative features that are clearly necessary for their functional nature. Showing that there have been complex cultural aspects to the carving of bone since the earliest times. In Bone Carving, Stephen Myhre has drawn with great sensitivity, on techniques and styles of carving from a wide range of Pacific cultures, particulary Maori. The result is a superbly practical handbook for anyone embarking upon this rapidly growing craft.
