Topic: Korean bow origins
In Korea their resides a statue of a Korean an archer on horseback with a representation of a Korean bow that looks more like a step horseman bow than the Korean traditional bow we know today.
(Which in my humble opinion is the far superior bow)
Given that the statue resides in Korea-it’s curious to me that it does not more closely resemble the KTB as we know it today?
Does anybody have any insights into why that boat would be depicted in such a way?
It appears that everything else was meticulously planned clothing etc. It’s curious to me that the bow would have been haphazardly put together when creating the statue.
Which brings me to another question.
What are the oldest depictions, artist renderings, examples of the Korean traditional bow that we know today?
Any insights would be appreciated.
