Re: [MedievalSawdust] Re: chip carving
- In stone, do a search on 'Jesus Family Tomb' - at least one of the
ossuaries has 'chip' carved rosettes. Photos are in the May/June 2007
(vol 18 No.3) issue of Minerva, if you local library gets it.
There are a lot of 'chip' carved designs in stone from the
'Classical' world, just that the amount of surviving wood is very
limited. I'll have to do a quick search of my Roman woodworking books
to see if anything survived from Herculaneum.
