~ Native American Bolas ~
The bolas is a traditional South American hunting weapon. The bolas is a hunting weapon designed to be thrown like a lasso in order to entangle the legs of animals.
This example has three stone bola weights bound in leather and strung onto braided leather chords. At one end of the chord is a small holding loop.
We think its around a 100 years old.

The Bolas are in good condition. The braids and knots remain tight and the stone weights secure. There are no major areas of damage to the article, although the leather has become dry and a little flakey with age.
