Bone Workshop

The Guanche Recall

The Guanches, natives of the Canarian Islands, manufactured tools and a lot of other objects from bones (e. g. fieldworking instruments, fish hooks, beads, pendants). These iron knifes shafted in sheep or goat tibiae and the figurines were produced in Teneriffa. I found them at Sangara in Valle Gran Rey, La Gomera.
