Shields and boomerangs are decorated for dancing, with abstract designs which refer to tradtional land and ceremonial affiliations. The white dot arrangment, as is represented on this boomerang, reflects the sparkle of the water on the estuary, as well as the body markings on a shark

Physical Description

A boomerang made from a single piece of hardwood painted with natural pigments. Red ochre is used to form the base coat, with white pipe clay covering the ends and specs of dot that make up the centre. Two strips of vertical black lines separate the design at either end.
