This hunting boomerang or throwstick from Queensland has an unusual hook shape and remnants of ceremonial white paint on the shorter arm. This boomerang was probably made in the first half of the 20th Century. This boomerang has a smooth finish and a fine patina on both surfaces. Queensland boomerangs are often finished by wetting the surface and then scrapping off the softer wet surface material with a sharp stone or metal blade. This boomerang is in very good condition, but there is one small rough edge near the tip of the longer blade.

Length = 45 cm ; Weight = 182 gm
