- Curator's comments
- See AOA Christy Correspondence - letter from M V Portman, 19 April 1895
'X. The bows of the Rutland Island tribe of Jarawas more nearly resemble those of the Onges, but are thicker and convex instead of flat in section.
The bow strings of these Bows are made from the fibre of the Ficus laccifera.
These Bows are made from two woods. Mimusops Indica and a Rubiacea.'
