A pair of finely carved and painted Boomerangs from Central Australia. Boomerangs like these are used for hunting animals and can be thrown with great precision, they can also be used as dance wands during important ceremonies. You can find old photos of traditional ceremonies in Central Australia that men are holding painted boomerangs like these. Boomerangs have their own mythology of how they were given from Ancestral Beings who taught men how to make them and hunt with them.
