They are both innately skilled, whether working metal with a hammer and anvil or wood with a carving tool.
The blacksmith's skills are shown in the anvil and the hammer.
Three small bones (the hammer, anvil , and stirrup bones) vibrate with the sound, passing the vibrations to the inner ear.
The findings are drawn from examination of the hammer, anvil and stirrup bones in the ears of Homo heidelbergensis fossils, also known as Boxgrove Man.
Amature meteorologists will recognize the cumulonimbus, a thunderstorm cloud characterized by the anvil shaped top.
In the simplest case, the metal is compressed between a hammer and an anvil and the final shape is obtained by turning and moving the work piece between blows.
The middle ear is an air-filled cavity which consists of an eardrum and three tiny, interconnected bones - the hammer, anvil , and stirrup.
Composed mostly of ice, an anvil cloud gets its shape from the rising air in the thunderstorm that expands and spreads out as the air bumps up against the bottom of the stratosphere.
The smith looked up from the sword he was pounding on an anvil with a huge hammer, and wiped his eyes.
The sound makes the eardrum vibrate, which in turn causes a series of three tiny bones (the hammer, the anvil , and the stirrup) in the middle ear to vibrate.
