These boomerangs are made from mulga tree. We use mulga to do boomerangs and other kinds of traditional weapons. These bomerangs are used for hunting and back in the old days they used to use them for fighting. Some could be used for ceremony and these two boomerangs could be used for that. Just like that.

Desert Mob is presented annually in Mparntwe | Alice Springs on Arrernte Country.

On behalf of Desart’s staff and art centre members, the Executive Committee humbly and respectfully acknowledge the Arrernte Apmereke Artweye (Traditional Owners) and Kwertengerle (Traditional Managers) of Mparntwe.


Desart respectfully advises Aboriginal readers that this website may contain names, images and artworks of people who have passed away.
