This hunting boomerang, or throwstick, is from the southern part of Western Australia. It was probably made in the first half of the 20th Century. The wood is dark in the central section and blonde on the edges. The entire underside is textured with adze marks. The upper surface is incised with a very unusual zig zag design over the entire surface except for the extreme blade tips which have shallow linear incisions. This boomerang is in very good condition except that there is a shallow edge chip at the inside of the bend and a few end cracks, one of which is a couple of inches long. This throwstick would make a very nice display.

Length = 55 cm ; Weight = 214 gm
