IAC22 GJ - Understanding Hardstone and Gem Carvings

Session Description

Practice of carving goes back to Paleolithic age. The sophistication of some of the archaeological pieces suggests a form of deep symbolism, yet we will never know the true meanings. Today’s carvings, however, range from mass production to rare artwork, not only performed on the ordinary rocks, but also on rare minerals. In this talk, Dr. Lule will share her perspective on carvings and their value factors.
