    Twin Arrow Package

    In this limited quantity package you get one arrow created by artist Levon Loncassion in Zuni, NM. After cutting the straightest shoots from the invasive tamarisk, or salt cedar, Levon peels, dries, and straightens the arrows over a flame, then paints the shafts. He then cuts arrowheads out of flattened spoons with a jeweler's saw, and ties on the fletching. Because they are so labor intensive to produce, we are limiting the number available. Includes everything in the Monster Mash.
