Traditional Longbow

This was my latest finished bow for my friend. I am terrible about taking picks of my best work, so I asked my friend to take some with his phone n send em. Usually I break old tradition and decorate the face 'back' of the bow with syllables. This one is red oak with a hickory backing and after I shined it up it was too pretty to decorate. Two pheasant tail feathers hang from the handle.

It's important to note, this is not in the old style either, only the pheasant feathers make it resemble Indian craft, but that is just my own thing.
