Carving is an uncommon art practiced by a respected few. Most Gryphs have the capacity and innate tools to carve, and carved trinkets are common, but carving artists are sought after for Den decoration. A great carver can make art in the living wood and roots of a tree without killing or harming it, and that carving will not just go away, but evolve over time and be pleasing for generations of Gryphs.
An even more uncommon practice is stone carving. This time consuming art is often practiced with a combination of magic and expensive imported tools. The most common places to see stone carved in some of the outcroppings around the Leina Tundra where a family of Snow Lupes has created a family tradition of carving stone with wind over decades and generations.
