This great object comes from a large collection of Aboriginal artifacts that was amassed over A 40 year period
Many artistic activities of the Australian Aboriginals have a religious or magical background.
This applies to rock paintings, and also to decorated weapons.
Besides these are the objects made especially for use during the various ceremonies.
Some of these, such as churingas and bullroarers of Central Australia and Western Australia, the dance boards, ceremonial tablets, decorated with intricate iconic patterns, and are artistically of a very high order.
I will be listing more rare artifacts soon
