The antique collector, Sudarshan Sahoo, created the bow and arrow and named it ‘Mayurkanthia.’ It is 2 feet long and 1.5 feet wide and weighs around 2 kg. The special bow and arrow is completely made up of copper. 

“I named the bow and arrow ‘Mayurkanthia’ and the carving works are done in a design of a peacock’s beak. I will dedicate this bow and arrow to Lord Ram,” said Sahoo.
