Selected Aboriginal objects and artefacts including boomerangs and other weapons, carvings, bark paintings, sculptures, didgeridoos, masks and fish nets.

Artefacts and Carvings

Artifacts and objects from around Australia include some of the everyday traditional tools and weapons – boomerangs, shields, spears and hunting sticks – used by Aboriginal people across the continent. The women have crafted digging sticks, coolamons and some woven ornaments. Fibre weavings, particularly from Arnhem Land, include baskets and bags, mats and spirit figures such as Yawkyawks.  Other ceremonial items include Pukamani poles, hollow log coffins and carved Mimi spirit figures, as well as traditional bark paintings. Carvings from the islands of the north coast of Australia include ancestor figures, masks and totemic animals. The Aboriginal material culture from traditional life remains strong in some regions while in other areas it has rapidly adjusted to modern lifestyles.
