This item is a, curved and slender Pitjantjatjara throwing stick "club" with nice petina, deep groove longitudinal fluting over the entire surface, except for the hand grip which has cross hatch fluting. The interface between the two patterns is shown enlarged in the photo below. This club is Pitjantjatjara and is quite old, probably made in late 19th or early 20th century. It is nearly perfect and without flaw except for a few minor natural wood defects. This club measures 63 cm in length and it weighs 360 grams.
