MAN ALWAYS WAS A CARVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
MAN ALWAYS WAS A CARVER. History does not treat of a timo when tarving was not, apparently, woll known. Tradition dues not appear to approach much nearer to its genesis. Carvings were well executed during the period of man's early eoouDAtian of the c&ves of Eumne. and most porsona who have fAmillarised themselYes with archaeological rneirch. know the figures of fish or seal engraved on the canine teeth of large carnivore, and the bear, reindeer, mnskox, horse, mammoth and other Huimuls carved ou roindoer-bom implements or un plates of ivory, the figures of animals hciuf at the time cut fully in the round and found in the lowest strata of the oaves, under many feet of cave earth and stalsgma, and associated with tho benw of a quaternary and, at times, an wctio fauna. The similar ity of much of this cave work with much of tho Eskimo production of tho present day hat, given rise to innumerable theories con cerning a common origin for both peoples. V
