Bullroarers are ancient aboriginal musical instruments, which make an eerie roaring sound. Bullroarers have accompanied the didgeridoos in initiation ceremonies and in burials to ward off women and children or evil spirits. Aborigines also used it for communication hence the name wife-caller. It consists of a weighted aerofoil (a rectangular slat of wood about 15 cm/6 in to 60 cm/24 in long and about 1.25 cm/0.5 in to 5 cm/2 in wide) whirled rapidly about the head on a long cord to make that deep whirring, roaring noise. The aboriginal art on our bull-roarers represents the local fauna.
