Late 19th-Early 20th Century Tribal Boomerang, Australia


A lovely, elegantly carved hardwood boomerang. With its pointed arc silhouette, the weapon almost seems to depict an abstract avian form. Subtle striations run the length of the stick, beautifying its warm surface and drawing in the eye at close range. Boomerangs are one of mankind's most ancient hunting tools. They were designed to speed to the target and strike with great force, bringing down birds and other small game. Boomerang comes with custom base.
