Large Ceremonial Bilma - Clapsticks
45 cm & 33 cm
1950's - 1960's by Margaret Fairweather (1915-2003), a well known
Northern Territory lady who built the Daly
River Hotel with her husband. Fairweather was an avid collector of fine
Aboriginal artefacts and had a good long association with the Malakmalak
and Moil tribes of that region.
The size of these very large clapsticks denotes that they belonged to
someone of high ceremonial status, the bilma have been expertly crafted
from the heartwood of ironwood and are imbued with a wonderful ringing
metallic sound, the benchmark of high quality, genuine Aboriginal clapsticks!
