native arrows and bows

got the recent opportunity to visit a native friend of mine who collects and creates Native American bows and arrows using the old ways. hoping to collaborate and help him paint the designs on some bows! among his amazing collections are Kochina dolls, Hopi bows and arrows. Cherokee war tools and a fantastic assortment of woven baskets! so exciting to know that these beautiful. functional objects where not bought in a store. they were created with things straight from the backyard. from beginning to end! here is a photo of some vintage guns next to authentic bows from the Hopi tribe! love! enjoy! photo by s/p. 2012
