Borndok wooden carving by local Bininj artist Dwayne Richards.

Dimensions: 73cm x 7cm

Borndok (in Kunwok for a spear thrower), was traditionally used in hunting. Using  this tool was specifically considered Men's business, which forbids women to use it. You would use one hand to hold the borndok and with the other you would place the spear in the hook. It is time to hunt food for the family.

This artwork has been purchased directly from an Aboriginal artist in Kakadu National Park or Arnhem Land. Warradjan Cultural Centre is committed to supporting artists, their families and the local community.
