ERC: „MOM N‘ DAD“ (NO. 49+50)
These are two sinewed ERC (Eatern red cedar) short bows with short recurves, tips and handle were sinew wrapped and some dark brown pigments were applied when glue still was wet. Both got a paint job with same pigments on the back in an opposing triangle pattern.
At least some muskrat fur strips on handle and tips.
Dad got the darker fur, mom the brighter.
Both are now exact 50” ntn.
Mom 2” wide, dad 1½”.
