Here is a link to a photo of the bow

I was hoping to come across someone who might have a little bit of history of these bows, and any information in the construction of these bows.
The biggest questions that I have are about the riser. And how it is put together.
For some reason this bow really interests me.
It seems simpler in the amount of materials that are put together, but I can see where keeping the bamboo bending at the right locations would make it a challenge.
Would one need to heat treat and take as much care as it one would with the horn composite? Especially during bracing?
Also, what role did this bow play in history? Can it be dated as far back as the horn composite?
