Bow shapes of history

Modern archery classifications fail to describe complicated shapes of historical bows, so I classified them with a consistent convention based on the side profile and includes features such as asymmetry, string contact, and static tips.
Culture is avoided in this classification system, because many cultures used a variety of bow designs. Im also interested in making videos for other classifications systems such as cross-section or material, specifically for historical bows.
My work is inspired by many others and I want to thank the ATARN archery community for the revisions!
