Kili's bow replica by HouseOfLostPlay Kili's bow replica by HouseOfLostPlay
This is a replica of Kili's bow from "The Hobbit" movies. This version is not functional and it is made of a piece of ebiara wood (for the "arms") and some pieces of maple wood for the 2 central parts bronze-painted. The carvings are all hand-made with chisels.
The original design is by Weta Workshop. I used the picture from the book "The Hobbit Chronicles" by Weta and the pictures from the movie frames as reference, but I took some artistic freedom in the carvings and proportions.

That's a beautiful piece and the accurate details are amazing. Congratulations. Concerning the point that it's not functional: I imagine building such a strong bow which shoots as really difficult, because of finding a wood that wouldn't break would be a real challenge. Or getting the pieces sinued together. I'm no expert in this.
But actually I read that Kili's bow resembles mostly hunting bows you can shoot from a horseback. You might want to check out this article, there's a lot of details on Kili's bow and his other weapons: thorinoakenshield.net/2014/01/…

Thank you so much for your lovely comment :)
Yeah, I'm not experienced in bow making, I've just read something on the internet and it should be very labourious to make a functional version of this... someday probably i will try :D
Thank you so much for the link, it is very interesting!!

You're very welcome, I really like it :) - As mentioned, making functional bows is not an easy task but for someone familiar with wood working like you, it might be easier. 
I've seen (on your Facebook page) you also crafted a lot of pipes, even Gandalf's and Thorin Oakenshield's. Wonderful work.
