Na'vi - long-range hunting weapon
|Behind the scenes|
The Na'vi hunting bow is a ritualistic item. A young Na'vi warrior uses a normal wood bow, but once he/she becomes part of "The People," they are allowed to carve their bow from a branch of their Hometree. A resonating gourd can be held against the string to temporarily make it a musical bow.
Among the Tawkami Clan, hunting bows are a symbol of passage into adulthood. Their legends tell of one bow in particular, wielded long ago by a great hero.
