Ivory was worked in Egypt since Neolithic times, both hippopotamus and elephant ivory. Although the former was native to Egypt, most ivory was imported from abroad. Texts mention Punt, God's Land, Kush and the Southern Country, all areas to the south of Egypt. According to some inscriptions, ivory was also imported from Asia. All kinds of objects were made from ivory, such as jewellery, arrow points, small pieces of furniture, toilet articles, statuettes, the handles of weapons and mirrors, and spoons. Ivory was also used for inlays.
