Bone carving is an ancient type of decorative art, distributed mainly in the northern regions.
In Russia, there are four of the most famous bone carving industries: in the Arkhangelsk region - the villages of Kholmogory and Lomonosovo, in Tyumen - the city of Tobolsk, in Chukotka - the village of Uelen, in the Republic of Sakha - Yakutsk.
A feature of Russian bone objects is their functionality. Most products along with aesthetic value have practical applications, and only a small part serves exclusively for interior decoration.
