The healing power of an ARROW

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming.”

About Murphy Munday & her arrows

From as early as I can remember, I have always found inspiration in nature. Collecting pockets and backpacks full of nature treats along the way while hiking, camping, or kayaking outdoors, I’ve ended up with quite a collection of sticks, nests, and rocks from around the world. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
In 2014, my husband and I took a little break from NYC and stayed upstate for several weeks. I was struggling with my mental health, unhappy with my career, and yearning for a purpose. I wanted to reconnect with my love of being in nature and it’s healing powers. I needed to. While on a hike along the Delaware River, I came across several uniquely-textured sticks and later learned that they had been de-barked by beavers (beaver sticks!). I became obsessed and couldn’t collect enough! We also found tons of smooth river stones, wild turkey feathers, bird and wasp nests. A couple months later, while still in the depths of my struggles, the idea hit me to create well-crafted arrows out of these beautiful nature-based materials. I felt comfort in creating arrows - a universal symbol of forward movement and also a symbol of my healing. I was ready to emerge and keep going forward, working with my hands and crafting decorative arrows. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Today, my hope is that my craft will bring a peaceful, natural element to your life and a little reminder to keep going.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Continuing to use self-foraged materials as much as possible, I love to create these wildlife sculptures, each with a distinct design element. Every piece is bound and decorated with 100% cotton Japanese thread waxed with beeswax and features a small "MM" burned signature.⠀⠀
