Decorated Valai-Tadi

Place of Origin: South India

Date: 18th or 19th century

Reference: 082

Status: Sold

Full Description:

A slightly later (18th or 19th century) ‘Valai-Tadi’ boomerang than the previous example (cat.no.30).  This one is less likely for battle use, and rather for hunting small animals.  Lighter, but more decorative, the reinforced end has a dense pattern of leaves, with two rows of half circles along the spine, and three four-petalled flowers on each side.  The bell shaped handle with some damage to one side.
