Bone Lime Containers Timor's Treasures

Reviving and indeed creating an arm of scrimshaw that is still to be recognised on the world arena, there are just a few men in specific areas of the central highlands of West Timor that specialise in carving containers from this most difficult of mediums.

There is local trading amongst the Timorese for those that covet the bone containers. This ensures that the better craftsmen are kept busy and means that there is sometimes a variety of containers available to me when I go there.

The precision with which they are created using the simplest of tools has to be seen to be appreciated, always the carving marches/matches perfectly around the entire bone piece.
