Dreamtime Native Arts& Crafts
About the artist:
"I’m a descendant of the Kamilaroi Nation Walhallow via Coroona, which is located Northern Central New South Wales Australia. I have always been creative at heart, and my artworks are inspired by my Aboriginality and memories. Within my paintings I like to use Earthy and bright colours with the symbols from our ancestors to show the world that our culture is still strong and beautiful. I have exhibited my artworks throughout Australia.”
About the boomerangs:
The central Australian Fighting boomerang is sometimes called a number 7 boomerang or a swan neck boomerang. The most collectible variety has a small notch at the top of the neck.
The design of this boomerang is for fighting. The protrusion will catch on the opponent's shield and the long shaft whip around and inflict the damage. These boomerangs were so sort after that they also acted as a form of currency. They used to be traded between tribes over vast areas.
Beautifully hand-painted by Kayelene Slater, these boomerangs make perfect gifts for colleagues and loved ones.
