The darts and quiver are carried over the shoulder using a rigid, woven, string strap (included) by Maku hunters who search for and catch monkeys to feed their village. The tip of the dart is dipped in curare (a neurotoxic poison) just before insertion in the blowpipe.
The monkey is paralyzed and in minutes falls to the ground. This quiver is not only a fascinating hand-made curiosity but an actual indigenous rain forest tribal weapon and would enhance an ethnology exhibit found in any world class museum of anthropology.
