This archery sculpture at Rincon Park in San Francisco is intriguing, engaging and larger than life. It’s also part of the landscape. It’s a strong presence in the park, and helps people think about archery in abstract ways.
“Three 10s” is a beautiful watercolor piece by Hailey El. Herrera. Like the Rincon Park sculpture, this painting incorporates abstract elements. The background creates a large conceptual target. It’s not obvious, however, and resembles a multicolor sunset at first glance. As you sharpen your focus, the target starts taking shape. This interesting painting showcases the archer and target in the same piece.
Tattoos are intimate pieces of artwork. They turn art into a living, breathing thing that holds personal meaning the owner can show the world. This sport gets into an archer’s blood and stays there. If archery is embedded in your DNA, a tattoo helps show the world how much it means to you.
TudorsCreations on Etsy makes unique, whimsical creations from metal horseshoes. This piece depicts an archer in a simple way. The minimalistic approach is intriguing and creative. Buying or making a unique art piece like this will generate great conversations in your home.
Another Etsy shop, HannieOakley, designs jewelry and dedicates an entire section to arrow/archery fashion. The shop crafts earrings from arrow fletching in various colors and patterns. Fletching earrings are simple to make once you have the earring hooks. Try crafting a pair yourself to make a strong archery fashion statement.
