Wood composite bows

My wood composite bows are basically sinew backed bows. Although I have experimented with several designs, the only wood composite bow I offer for sale have the features  of the long eared central Asian bow.

The design I choose for this bow is based on an ancient bow found in a cave in the northern Gobi desert, the Omnogov Aimak. It was found almost intact, with the limbs severely twisted, alongside the body of a Mongol Nomad (Journal of the Society of Archery Antiquaries, 38: 71-75).
