Vintage 14 Inch Bunabiri Australian Aboriginal Boomerang, Unused
A very nice vintage large-size hardwood 14 inch Bunabiri boomerang, made in Australia. Skillfully crafted and hand painted by the Aboriginal people; no two are exactly alike. While fully functional these were intended as souvenirs rather than hunting mechanisms. This boomerang was most probably produced in the late 1980's/early 90's.
There are three labels still attached to the underside of the boomerang, one of which reads "Bunabiri, Aboriginal Design. Hand Decorated By Australian Aboriginals. Crafted From Native Timbers". The pricetag is still affixed which says $15.95 (presumably in AUD). The last label 'returning boomerang' explains the instructions for usage. A stamp that says [14"] can also be seen.
CONDITION: Never been thrown. Has some small scuffs on the underside due to storage/handling. Top side is perfect for display. Edges are like new without any damage. Use with caution.
