or Western Desert
Previously in an old UK collection)
C. 1900-- likely older
hardwoods of red and dark brown, sinew, spinifex resin, fiber, bone?
very old woomera spear throwers in good condition retaining their
original barbs and spinifex resin around the pommels of the handgrips.
The smaller, almost black example, is carved from some of the darkest wood
I've seen. The longer reddish one has attractive rippling around
portions of the edges from natural shrinkage over time. I would
describe their surface patinas as mellow smoky and varied. In good
condition showing normal wear and minor losses.
