Three vintage Philippine arrows
 
12 Attachment(s)
Have got these three arrows, from the making I would guess that they are not particularly old. The seller stated that they are of Philippine origin and he has got them from a French museum but can't tell me from where they exactly come. Any guess? Maybe our Philippine members? They are approx. 100 cm long.

Detlef, looking in the book "Traditional Archery from Six Continents, The Charles E. Grayson Collection" ... there are illustrated arrows of very similar construction and metal heads, described as from the Philippines. Not specific as to area in the Philippines, but said to be late 19th early 20th century.

While the arrows have an overall appearance of age, the nocks don't look as though the arrows have ever been used - no wear from a bowstring.

But I'm no archer, so I could be wrong.

Thank you Colin! :) Since I don't own the book, can you please post a picture from them?

Thanks in advance,
Detlef

Hello Bob,

Very good possible but like you I am not an archer. ;)

Hi Detlef,
These long arrows are made by several groups in Central and Northern Luzon. If you look in Kriegerís plates elsewhere on this site you will find similar examples. I canít recall whether these are Aeta (Negrito) or one of the more northern people such as one of the Igorot groups. I think the latter but I donít recall exactly.
Ian.

Hi Ian, thank you very much! You are correct, there are shown arrows from both, Aeta and Igorot.

Detlef
