CDC 174 – Weaponry
I made these for a contest back in 2010, but didn’t manage to enter them in time. Figured I might as well enter them in this contest.
“The bow was made by Apollo. He gave it to Eurytus, who became well known as an excellent archer. He was so proud that he challenged the god himself to an archery contest. He lost, of course, but his act of hubris brought misfortune to his family.”

The youth takes one more quick glance at the mirror before the old woman chases him out of her shop.
