South American Bola with Decorated Balls
Not much is known about this bola except that it is of typical size and weight for a bola from Argentina, South America. This bola was sold in an internet auction that identified the balls as having a Tres Marias Decoration. It is not known if the black leather strips that were woven into the pierced leather ball coverings are what differentiates a Tres Marias bola from the other types of bolas. A graphic showing this decorated bola is below.
