Description:  This is the best "woomera" (spear thrower) of its type I've had in years.  Its concave face is deeply carved with classic zig-zag patterns.   It features two incised human figures and an Emu on the back (convex) side.  Some may interpret that inverted figure as a Goanna.  The central figure looks like it is "floating" or ascending.  In fine condition and presented on a custom display stand.
