Vintage Set of Bolas or Boleadoras - Sold

Bolas or boleadoras are a hunting tool or weapon.
They came from South America. Similar arrangements of throwing stones and ropes were originally used by the indigenous people, but after the arrival of the Spanish they were adopted by the gauchos. They were used for hunting and herding – the balls would be swung around to gain speed and then released, wrapping themselves around the quarry animal’s legs.
I wrote a blog abouth them a while ago HERE
