                Bone hair pins are hair accessories hand-carved from the bones of cattle or other beasts,the decoration exquisitely crafted and rich in associations.The top end is often engraved with single- or double-head portraits(some wearing caps) whereas the lower end carries flower,fish,animal and geometric decoration.It is said that the portraits commemorate the idol of their ancestors’ tribal leader,invoking his blessings.Bone hairpins in human shape have a long story and are seen as the cream of traditional Li folk bone carving.
