Introduction

The bone carving, a kind of carving art taking bones as its carriers, has a long history. In the Neolithic age, while the ancients were fighting against the harsh nature for survival with their extremely backward productivity, they collected materials from where they were living and created this works. Although it is plain and simple, it reflects a kind of worship to ancestors.

With the history changing, the bone carving has been gradually evolving from daily necessities to decorations. Ancients had used bones to make needles and knives and carve characters and patterns on bones long time ago. As we all know, the bone carving is a mascot with the meanings of receiving wealth and blessings, bringing good luck, keeping evils away and ensuring safety. It is said it does bring people with all lucky things such as blessings, wealth, career, love, happiness and education etc. It is not only well-known for local Tibet people but also respected by people throughout the world.

    "li"Appearance difference:

All bone has the telltale flecks of marrow, or tiny notches, in the surface. These may not be visible to the naked eye, but you should be able to see them through a magnifying glass.

    "li"Hlod the piece in your hand and feel its weight:

Bone feels heavy and dense when you hold it in your hand. If you’re unsure whether the item feels appropriately solid, weigh it, then compare its weight to similar items that you know to be bone.

    "li"Run your fingers over the item to feel its texture:

A quick test is to place the item on one’s cheek, if the item is cold then it maybe real, a very similar test is used to tell glass buttons from plastic. This test has many variables, the temperature of the item and of the room and so forth.

    "li"Doing the Hot Pin test:

Try heating the tip of a pin to red hot and touching it to the surface of the object in an area that is not easily visible. Smell the place where you touched the item with the hot pin. bone will smell faintly of burning hair.
