Indigenous Australian Wunda Shield
Classic fluted Indigenous Australian Wunda Shield from Western Australia
Object type: Aboriginal Shield
Locality: Western Australia
Length: 84 cm
This shield was collected by an American traveler in 1947 along with some woomeras that were still wrapped in a 1947 newspaper. It is very well fluted and displays very well.
Wunda shields made for the Mission are common but older genuine examples like this are much harder to find especially in such good condition
