This Aboriginal boomerang ( throwstick ) was made out of a dense heavy hardwood, possibly Mulga, by Aborigines from the southern desert region of Australia. The upper surface has incised geometric decorations over most of the upper surface. The under surface is undecorated, and there are two small screw holes for mounting. The holes do not go through to the upper surface and one of the holes still has the screw and wire loop, so it would be easy to mount on your wall. There is no damage on this throwstick, other than very minor edge wear and chipping from use. This throw stick was probably made in the mid 20th Century. Span = 67 cm Weight = 414 gm.
