OLD AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL KILLING BOOMERANG - TRIBAL MARKINGS

Old aboriginal killing boomerang with inscribed markings to the front and rear faces. At some stage this boomerang has also been decorated with ochre. The ochre has faded with time but the patterning of the ochre decoration is still visible in the surface of the timber. Front face tooled smooth. Rear face substantially smooth but with areas of roughness / tooling / adzing evident.

Age and collection history unknown but this boomerang is of clearly of some age. Edges worn smooth through handling/usage and great overall patina. Most likely Western Australian (but I could be wrong in this).

In good vintage condition but it has clearly "had a life" at some stage. Chips and areas of loss to edges and tips
. The hole is a natural knot hole in the timber. There is a small, stable crack in one tip and what appears to be an age-related, fine shrinkage crack in the other arm. All these only add to the overall wonderful character of this boomerang. (Please refer to the photographs for a definitive overview of the condition and detail of this piece)

This is clearly a well made, and, in its working life, a very highly valued boomerang. A fabulous display piece.

POSTAGE

I am happy to combine postage where possible/practical.

Please let me know ASAP after your first purchase if you are making multiple purchases and I will accommodate you as best I can.

I only ever charge the actual postage cost as imposed by Australia Post. If I do inadvertently overcharge on postage I will refund the difference.

I do however insist on sending all items as either Registered or Signature on Delivery, as items lost in the postal system are annoying for both you and I.

LOCAL PICKUP

Always welcome (by prior arrangement) in Hamilton (suburban Brisbane) or other mutually convenient location.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm not really seeking to be visited by bad karma at any time in the future and as such I endeavour to conduct all my sales in an ethical, open and transparent manner.

I will describe any defects, condition issues etc to the best of my ability (but by the same token I am by no means an expert in any of the areas I have collected in)

I would like to think that you will not be disappointed with your purchase. If you do have a problem at any point however, please let me know ASAP and we will resolve it.

all the best and many thanks,

Ian
