A modern amazon.

The bow is for deer, a tasty doe or a wide-racked hart
The pistol for evil creatures not so dear to her heart

    She’s quite lovely, looks like a good archer, and she didn’t have to remove her left breast!

    We live in good times, indeed.

      My first thought too. Thanks to modern technology, she’s still symmetric.

      Lovely photo.

        I know women who do medieval re-creation archery, and they don’t need to remove a breast either, even with a medieval-period bow.

        Who knew?

    A remarkable pic! I like most of Oleg’s work, but this is a doozey!

    And I’m not even a fan of archery….

    “Modern” indeed. All of the major firearm actions were invented before 1900, but the compound bow was invented in 1966. The necessary materials weren’t available earlier.

    I’m always amused at the Mad Max type movies where they’re using compound bows because the economy is too regressed to produce firearms.

    Yeah, this entire image is pretty excellent. Great job both of you.
