Lot 0120C
Oceania, Australia, Aboriginal peoples, ca. early 20th century CE. A hand-carved wooden boomerang meant for hunting rather than for display. The body is gently curved and ready to be thrown, with the handle portion longer than the other end. The obverse side is slightly curved, with both ends smooth and rounded, and the textured handle gives it a fine gripping surface. Aboriginal peoples made tools and airfoil weaponry from a variety of different woods known for their high density, heavy weight, and sturdy construction. This example features light relief carvings of abstract motifs on the handle and shallow grooves down the wider end. Size: 3.4" W x 21.45" H (8.6 cm x 54.5 cm)
