A functional replica of the Ivory throwing stick found in the tomb of King Tut.  We were not able to use real ivory of course, but this impact resistant faux ivory replica flew very well as an experiment to test the bird hunting non returning boomerangs/throwing stick models found in the tomb of King Tut in Howard Carter's 1922 world famous find.   Photo shows the original with gold cap shown in Museums today.   Our model here shows the proper lift and climbing flight of a bird hunting throwing stick, going about 60 to 70 yards before climbing and returning a little before dropping back to the ground.   These are not painted or decorated, and are meant for flight testing and experiments instead of display.
