Articles of carved bone were always expensive and were regarded as objects of luxury. Written sources testify to the high standard of Russian bone-carving.
The book relates about famous centers of bone-carving in the Russian North: the villages of Kholmogory and Lomonosovo in the Archangel Region; Tobolsk in the Tyumen Region; the Chukot National Area, and Yakutsk in Yakutia.
