Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow and is derived from Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, it is primarily recreational, even an Olympic sport. A person who participates in archery is typically known as an ‘archer’ or ‘bowman’, and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a ‘toxophilite’. There are many references to archery in world Mythology, from Cupid to Shiva and beyond. If there is an archer or archery themed weather vane you have in mind, please give us a call.
