Awl

I reworked an Awl this past week and I finished up 3 variations of my Pestle. I had started the Awl a number of weeks ago and I forgot to upload it at the time. The majority of my work this week was spent on recreating the Pestles and just doing some general review of the models which I had previously created. I learned that the people who fashioned these artifacts let nothing go to waste. Animals provided sustenance and pelts. The meat was consumed and the skins and hides became robes, blankets and clothing and shelter. The bones and antlers were fashioned into weapons, tools and other objects such as ornaments. The Awl which I recreated would have been made from a larger bone and used to punch holes into buckskins or other similar materials.
