Southern Australia. 15 ¼” length. Dense wood. So dense that not only does it not float, it is not near buoyant but sinks like a rock. Torpedo form with lemon shaped butt. Scorch or burn decorated in a variety of patterns with various tools and with the accompanying bowl. The decoration is talismanic with meaning known to the owner and likely applied in a spiritual ritual. Probably a throwing club capable of bringing down a kangaroo.
