Based on the magnificent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, this study focuses on objects that were pricipally carved with a knife. They are divided into three major groupings: materials of animal origin (ivory and rhinoceros horn); materials of vegetable origin (bamboo, wood, gourd); material with mineral origin (soapstone). Richly illustrated, this book is a good reference on the minor arts of China.
