Milivoje Bokić … “u svom ljubomirskom kraju, visoravni između Bileće i Trebinja, sam, u dugim lutanjima po tim hercegovačkim vrletima pronalazi materijal za svoja dela. Svojim veštim okom otkriva pa onda otkopava koren graba ili hrast koji je obgrlio kamen, donoseći tu sirovu prirodu u Mostar, gde u ateljeu ravnodušna materija dobija preko potrebnu duhovnost, a prirodna grubost “finoću” ljudskog dela. Otuda normalan zaključak da Bokić poznaje dušu materijala u kome radi, a da je baveći se oblikovanjem drveta još od detinjstva izveštio svoju ruku do stepena koji izaziva divljenje. Skoro da i nema ideje koju ta vešta ruka, u kojoj je veliko iskustvo i znanje, nije u stanju da realizira”… “Iako Bokićeve skulpture pokazuju zavidnu raznolikost, kako po vrsti materijala (orah, hrast-kamen, grab-kamen) tako i po spoljašnjem figuralno-oblikovanom karakteru, koje se tako i mogu grupisati po srodnosti same materije kojoj se umetnik prilagođava, one su sve prožete istim duhom koji čini svet njegove umetnosti jedinstvenim”… “On je sačuvao duh i dah neposrednog doživljaja sveta dokučujući svojom umetnošću osnovni zakon po kome priroda sama živi. Dovodeći suprotnosti do one razine kada se između njih uspostavlja ravnoteža, koja je zapravo bitno obeležje njegovog dela, Bokić stvara jedan neobičan svet koji i pored svoje rustičnosti ima karakter idealnog.”

Milivoje Bokic “in his old country of Ljubomir, the upland between Bileca and Trebinje, alone, in the long roamings over those Herzegoviner craggy stretches, he locates the material for his works. With his able eye he finds out and then unearths the root of a hornbeam or an oak-tree hugging a rock, bringing that raw nature to Mostar, where, in his atelier the indifferent substance receives the absolutely necessary spirituality, and the natural crudity – the “fineness” of human action. Hence the logical conclusion that Bokic knows the soul of the material in which he works, and that he, having been engaged in wood shaping way back since his childhood, has acquired the skill in his hand to a degree arousing admiration. There is almost no idea which that skilful hand, possessing great ehperience and knowledge, is unable to realiye”… “Although Bokic's sculptures reveal an enviable variety, according to the kind of material (walnut, oak-wood-stone, hornbeam wood-stone), as well as according to external figuratively moulded character, which could be also grouped according to kinship of the very substance to wich the artist adapts himself, they are all imbued with the same spirit mailing the world of his art unique”… “He preserved the spirit and breath of the immediate perception of the world, grasping with his artistry, the fundamental law by which the nature itself lives. Carrying the opposites to the level when an equilibrium established among them, actually an essential trait of his work, Bokic creates an unusual world which in spite of its rusticity has a character of the ideal.”
