Arrow

 

a projectile fired from a bow, crossbow, or blowgun. The most common arrows used with a bow consist of the tip (head), shaft, and fletching. Shafts are made from different varieties of straight-grained wood and from reeds. In the Stone Age (Mesolithic and Neolithic) and Bronze Age, arrowheads were

made of hard stone—primarily flint—or, less often, of bone.

Arrowheads differed greatly in shape depending on when they were fashioned and on their purpose (see Figure 1).

What does it mean when you dream about an arrow?

Arrows have a rich and complex set of meanings. A person can be described as “straight as an arrow.” Cupid is known for using his bow and arrow to shoot love into a lover’s heart. Arrows can represent conflict, war, and aggression. More positively, they are used symbolically in business to point in the direction of company goals. An arrow also has masculine, phallic connotations, so that shooting someone with an arrow in a dream can have sexual overtones. Less obviously, arrows have been associated with inspiration, truth, sudden illumination, and poetry.
