Bone Carving

The traditional carvers descended from the ivory carvers of feudal courts.
Banned practically all over the world, this craft has later been applied to carving articles from bone. Lucknow is a city where even today, separate combs are crafted for combing a gentleman's moustache, his beard and for long as well as short hairs. A variety of other crafted articles made from bone are beads, hair clips, paper clips, bookmarks, photo frames etc.
