Boomerang ブーメラン

This boomerang is made from native Australian wood. It has been hand-decorated by a young Aboriginal woman, and tells the story of of her people who live by the sea.

There are several varieties of boomerangs. This traditional hunting boomerang is long on one side, and short on the other side. There are more Aboriginal souvenirs on sale at the Aborigine Art Gallery souvenir shop. Purchases will support employment in these communities, and help preserve their culture.


ブーメランにはいくつかの種類があります。この伝統的なハンティング用のブーメランは、一方が長くもう一方は短く作られます。Aborigine Arts Gallery のオンラインショップではこれらの多くのアボリジニ土産品を販売しております。

A very nice piece. I wonder if these Australian boomerangs might be a nice addition to my own gallery. Maybe I might put something up at my blog too.
