Bow and arrow, Negrito people Philippine?
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
