Frankincense has a history of use as a tenacious glue, repairing pottery and in the making of musical instruments.
Used and referred to in Coptic art, best known for its wall-paintings, textiles, illuminated manuscripts, and metalwork, much of which survives in monasteries and churches in Ethiopia and within what was once known as the Byzantine Empire.
