South India longbow

A particularly beautiful bow which is shaped like the South-India double curve, but made like the Japanese Yumi bow, with the central laminate consisting of thin strips of bamboo and tropical hard wood. Bamboo backing and belly. This makes it a rather time-consuming process, but the finished bow is very easy and fast. The bow can also be made with a bamboo-only belly.
