Australia Dolls Aboriginal People

Matching pair of dolls representing the Aboriginal, the indigenous people of Australia. The female is holding a boomerang, a wing shaped stick that comes back when thrown. Used for hunting, religeous and recreational purposes. With stickers ‘Australian Aboriginal, Made in Australia’ on both stands and ‘Thank you for supporting Australian industry’ around stick and arm. Eyes have disappeared.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
