Il y a un os ! - Artisanat d’un matériau singulier : de l’os à l’objet



Caroline Anderes

French, Nyon Roman Museum, Catalogue of the exhibition (25 p.), 2006.

Bone, horn, ivory, recuperation and prestige … The Nyon Roman Museum takes an interest in the craft of bone-working; its practitioners had at their disposal their know-how, a few tools, and their sense of the rational use of animal resources and materials. The ingenious and varied, often beautiful, objects made by these craftsmen were a feature of daily life in ancient times; nowadays plastic has replaced them almost universally.
