Wood carving is a technique that is practiced by removing material. It also refers to the work made of wood. Although the practice of wood carving is very old (there is no trace of it, because wood is a material that does not resist the ravages of time), clay sculpture remains the first technique and the first material used for sculpture. Woodcarving is a skill recognized by the Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage in France.
The term trevally refers to several species of oceanic fish in the family Carangidae. Solitary fish that during migrations gathers in schools. During its ascent against the current, it pauses and the entire bench forms clockwise rounds.
