Bone Bi-Point

The bone bi-point was for learning about archeological drawings. It was a fun assignment, but I did pick a rather simple object. It as pretty small, too. The bone bipoint, from a West Point excavation site, is from abut 3500-2700 BC. It was made using the incision carving method, I think. That's where they just cut at it until it is the right shape.

Measured line drawings of a bone bipoint, which is essentially a sort of fish hook.

Ink drawings of bone bipoint, an illustration of how the bipoint was used, and some ink tests.
