Description

Traditional displays of boomerangs as with that in the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford in the UK have usually arrayed the boomerangs to accentuate their numbers and form.

Join Natalie Hewlett, Collections Manager at the Berndt Museum, to hear about design and display processes undertaken for the exhibition Boomerang – A National Symbol.

Boomerang: A National Symbol
8 February - 27 June 2020

Australia as a nation is recognised around the world by symbols of Aboriginal culture.

In this exhibition, the Berndt Museum explores the idea of the boomerang – beyond a symbol of ‘Australia’ – to highlight its many uses and meanings. The exhibition asks audiences: ‘How much do you know about boomerangs?’ Presented by the Berndt Museum of Anthropology.

Image design by Clare MacFarlane. Object: Norseman, Western Australia. Carved wood. Berndt Museum of Anthropology Collection [1982/0149].
