Description

A medium length shield of dark hard-wood. The entire surface of both the face and back has been engraved with highly detailed precise lines forming a “river current” of compact swirling lines. The terminal ends of the shield have been bordered off and have a slightly different swirl.

Research notes

Originally registered as coming from Central Australia. However, Alan West (valuer) suggested in 1999 that this is more likely from southwest NSW.
