The MacFarlane Collection contains accurate models of bows and arrows. Both simple and recurve bows are included. Simple bows curve in an arc from one end to another when they are strung, and recurve bows are constructed so that the centre of the strung bow curves towards the archer then bends away at each end. The recurve bows and several of the simple bows have sinew backing. Models of traditional tools were commonly made by Inuvialuit for trade with Europeans.
