You probably didn't get it. But I will repeat it again. The book is not addressed to dentists and biologists - specialists in walruses. The terms that I used are used by ethnographers, museum workers, and professional bone cutters. I realized that you did not know this. But now you know that.
In addition, the book received numerous positive reviews from experts from various museums and from art restorers
