ABORIGINAL WOOMERA - This Western Australian spear thrower woomera is as great old example in perfect condition. The form is wide with a strong design done with outstanding precision considering it was done with non metal tools. The Spinifex resin handle and bone insert are both intact which is unusual in examples of this age. The back is very finely adzed. It would date to the 19th century and measures 62 cm
Not only a tool for hunting and fishing, but in a situation that requires stealth, when no gun powder is available, no shells, maybe no guns/rifles etc, this could make a big difference in survival situations.
