"Suivre l'os" II : usage moderne et contemporain du lissoir en os

Abstract : A recent study carried out by archaeologists places the use of the bone tool called in English smoother and in French "lissoir", used in Europe since prehistoric times for making animal skins, more than 50,000 years before the present time. But what about the current use of this tool, well known to archaeologists? From the observation of various contemporary uses of bone tools, including the creation of leather theater masks in Master of art Erhard Stiefel’s studio, 18th century performances, and a recent collection of bone smoothers, we will see that the use "Continues" of this tool seems to have very recently declined.
