19th century
Height: 15 ¾ in. (40 cm) & 18 in. (46 cm)

Field-collected by George Aiston (1879 – 1943)
Ex collection Lindsay Black (1886-1959)

Both churingas were collected prior to the 1940s by George Aiston (1879-1943).
They later belonged to Lindsay Black (1886-1959). L. Black was an important scholar, ethnographer and collector of churingas (Black’s Museum, Mount Gambier), and notably author of « Mystery stones of the Darling River Valley » (Series : Customs of the Aborigines of the Darling River Valley and of Central New South Wales) published in 1942 with descriptions of the 252 (!) stone churingas in the author’s collection.

Boomerang

Australia

Carved and engraved wood
19th century
Height: 28 ¼ in. (72 cm)

Ex collection Todd Barlin, Sydney

The origin of the boomerangs coincides with the "Dreamtime", the mythical original times for the Aboriginal peoples of Australia.
The use of sticks or clubs for fighting & hunting goes back thousands of years and has been documented all over the globe among hunter-gatherers societies.
However, the design and use of boomerangs - clubs that were meant to return to the sender - have only been observed on the Australian continent.
Archaic cave representation of people holding boomerangs in their hands have been found in Arnhem Land. In Wyrie Swamp, Southern Australia, three boomerangs have been dated between 9,000 and 10,000 years ago.
There are two types of boomerangs, the " returners " and those intended for hunting (known as " non-returners ").
The vast majority of boomerangs were used for combat. They were also used occasionally for hunting or during ceremonies.

Turtleshell, shells, fibers
Early 20th century
Height : 8 in. (20 cm)

Ex collection Pierre & Claude Vérité, Paris

Intricate masks and figures made from plates of turtle-shell are unique to the peoples of the Torres Strait, which lies between Australia and New Guinea. As stated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, turtle-shell effigies were first recorded on the Torres Strait islands by the Spanish explorer Diego de Prado in 1606. Used primarily during male initiation and at funerary rituals, the masks represent mythical culture heroes and their associated totemic species.

Aboriginal shield

oceania | Australia

Aboriginal shield

Australia

Carved wood and pigments
19th century
Height: 38 in. (97 cm)

This type of shield was used for warfare as parrying shields against spears or boomerangs blows.
These shields were also actively traded throughout Western and Central Australia. Lastly, they also played in role in intiations and rituals. The motifs on the surface of the shield were totemic symbols related to the « songlines ».

In his 1987 book The Songlines, British novelist and travel writer, Bruce Chatwin describes the songlines as:
"...the labyrinth of invisible pathways which meander all over Australia and are known to Europeans as 'Dreaming-tracks' or 'Songlines'; to the Aboriginals as the 'Footprints of the Ancestors' or the 'Way of the Law’. Aboriginal Creation myths tell of the legendary totemic being who wandered over the continent in the Dreamtime, singing out the name of everything that crossed their path - birds, animals, plants, rocks, waterholes - and so singing the world into existence.''
