Great images, everyone!

Here is an image of a stamp depicting a rock cave painting (petroglyph) of prehistoric archers found in the Ennedi Plateau, and identified by French archaeologist Gérard Bailloud (1919-2010), designed and engraved by Jean Pheulpin, and issued by Chad on November 19, 1968, Scott No. 163.

Hi to all and Rod222
Just as an aside, it is no longer believed that King Harold died from an arrow in his eye.
The tapestry has been re-interpreted and it is believed that he died from sword wounds and was hacked to pieces by the Normans.
Regards
Horamakhet

It's a wonder anybody can ever hit the target when the arrow does the Watusi like this.

When I was shooting archery, many years ago, we called that the Archer's paradox. When you could actually see this when loosing the arrow, you knew you were at one with the arrow.
