Default Bow and arrow, Negrito people Philippine?

Hi
Just purchased the following item at a car boot sale, no information from the seller except that is old?

I think it is an Negrito bow and arrow set from the Philippines but I cant find much about it.

Very dense black bow curved on one side and carved into two curves on the inside , cross section would look like a B (sort of) and arrow tips seem to be made of the same wood with bamboo for the shaft .

Nice rattan braiding on the ends of the bow but nothing in the middle

overall length 170 cm and arrows are various lengths but approx 1 M

cant find anything really about these so i may be way off with ID if so can you let me know what it is

Regards

Ken
