OC516: Aboriginal Churinga

Aboriginal Churinga from the Kimberly Area, Western Australia. The finely carved pattern pattern is on both sides and the patina is good from age and use. These highly sacred items were used in ritual and as clan totems. Uninitiated men and women were not allowed to view or handle them. This fine example comes with a custom metal stand.
