Decorative Wood Works

“In their long hours of solitude the herders who were good with their hands wouldn’t sit idly. They’d always be chiseling something, creating something useful. Those who worked with wood had all the necessary tools, the onzil, the blade, the razor, the craft knife, a set of knives and grindstone. With these tools they’d make spinning wheels, spindles, canes, wooden spoons and ladles and seals for different uses. Those who were more skillful would create looms, handles for hatchets, pestles, mortars, and sealed containers … They would embroider the canes, spinning wheels and spindles with themes inspired from rural life such as flowers, birds, snakes, equine heads and heads of rams.”
