Aboriginal wooden container, NSW

This is a pre-European-contact style wooden vessel or container with curved sides from inland New South Wales. It measures 35 cm in length and is made from the outer bark of a tree trunk, possibly an acacia tree. Marks from an adze are visible on both sides of the vessel. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1983 from the Darling River area of western NSW. E68140
