Description: This presentation group of three museum grade Plains style arrows was created by Tom Sterling and JP Higgins. Joe Higgins, who has been flint knapping knives for over 10 years, created the arrow heads. This skill is matched in the detailed handle created by Tom Sterling, who has brought his attention to detail learned as an internationally known netsuke artist to this piece.
Two of the arrows feature heads flakes from heat treated chert from Kay County Oklahoma. The other is flakes from Pederanales flint from Texas. All three museum grade arrows were created in the style of the Central Plains Native American people. The points were set on fire-straightened red osier dogwood shafts with turkey feather fletching. These are short arrows for a centrally barreled (widened) shaft for use in the short and stiff saddle bow common among the Plains peoples.
A walnut wall display rack is included.
