This large symmetrical throwstick with totemic markings incised into the hardwood surface is from the Cooper's Creek region of Australia. This example is from the late 19th or early 20th century and is in excellent condition with almost no natural wood flaws and one small area with surface spalling adjacent to a natural knot. This throwstick has a fine patina. The lower edge of both sides has a ripple pattern to it as a result of the wood shrinking slowing from moisture loss over the past century. It is difficult to find ceremonial boomerangs like this anymore. This one is really nice and a good collectable.
