Bone carving. Play on words here. The hunter or the gatherer?

Finding the unisex form of the black singlet in a canon bone, drawing it out, then working it till smooth and silky. All the time I am thinking about the family roast.

The in back side of the singlet in the inside of the bone I often find stunning "lace like work veins". These marks of the beast, never normally seen, except by butchers, are what is left when all the marrow has been cleaned, scraped, and bleached out.

A statement on colonial times (not long past), and modern day aesthetics.
