FIRST COMPOSITIONS FROM MAMMOTH’S BONE
The first compositions of mammoth bones are various items that were made from the specified material.
The time frame for creating models is impressive: from prehistoric times to the present day.
FIRST PRODUCTS FROM MAMMOTH’S BONE
According to the data of modern science, it became possible to judge the first elements that were created from mammoth bones and used in everyday life. In the 3rd millennium BC they were made of:
- Stripes for clothes;
- Knife handles.
As the tusks and large bones were found, they began to make spears up to 2.5 meters long. Bone plates in ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, India and Japan were lined with various structures. Often these were temples and buildings erected in honor of the gods.
The tradition of using mammoth tusks was transferred to later civilizations, such as Byzantium. In the XI-XIII centuries in Europe it was decided to create various sculptures from the mammoth’s bones. But later came the decline of art, as the craft was entirely dependent on supplies from other regions of the planet. And only with the development of merchant shipping in the 17th century the delivery of material was resumed.
SCHOOL OF COSTORESES AROUND THE WORLD
To a large extent, the ancient and Far Eastern civilizations made a great contribution to the development of bone carving mastery. Their masters had unique techniques for softening, bleaching and dyeing bones. Back in the Middle Ages, China was able to create three-dimensional three-dimensional compositions. The masters from the “black continent” have succeeded significantly in this matter. There was material here that influenced the formation of ethnic motives.
In Russia, no less than the prospects for creating high-quality exhibits. To do this, there were relevant fossils and craftsmen. The largest schools for training and improving the skills of bone carving operated in Kholmogory, which is now the Arkhangelsk region and Tobolsk of the Tyumen region. Not less artisans stationed in Chukotka and Yakutia.
