This is a viking style bow called 'holmgard style'. I like it cause I can decorate it with a lot of traditional style art/words. Hickory is my favorite wood to use, but here in Cali it's harder to find so I use red oak. For a bow like this because its 80 pounds at my draw length, it needs to have backing so it doesn't snap. The red portion of the bow is rawhide backing.
