This hunting boomerang, or throwstick was made out of a Mulga natural elbow in Central Australia in the mid 20th Century. The central section is dark Mulga and the outer edges are the characteristic blonde color of Mulga. In the center of the upper surface, there are several incised tribal marks The surfaces are rough and not polished smooth, but this throwstick has a wonderful balance and the airfoiling is very good. This is not a hunting boomerang made for the tourist industry. It is the real thing and there is no damage from use. A wonderful and affordable collectible.
