    Hold up lol, it's not called "stone cutting" it's called Flint knapping. And there are alot of people today who do it as an artistic hobby.

    It’s not “Indonesia’s Papua province.” It is West Papua; annexed by Indonesia and ruled as a dictatorship with a slow genocide of the native people.

    Knapping is what they are doing and way more than 20 people are able to do it.

    That is so awesome! The way they go through all these steps and spend so many hours proves while these axes,arrow heads etc last so long. Also Im not sure how their penis's are not asleep sticking up in the air like that though...

    They soon be gone and there land will be converted into palm oil plantations so we can eat nutella and nachos to mention a few. But prob it happened already.

    Very interesting to see however the shaping of hand tools by percussive striking is known as knapping not stone cutting.
