This hardwood club is from the Central Desert region of Australia. Rather plain and with a thick cross section. The wood is probably Mulga. This is a good example of typical Aboriginal craftsmanship from this region. The Aborigines would have used woomeras with spears to injure game and then use a heavy boomerang, or a club such as this to kill the wounded animal. Really nice bi-colored wood, smoothly polished throughout and with incised line segments cut into one end to improve the grip. Has a couple of minor natural wood imperfections, but no impact damage. Length = 74 cm ; Weight = 528 gm
