"Arrow feather" ("Yagasuri")
This design takes an arrow as its motif.
It is composed of a nock receiving a bowstring, the fletching which allows the arrow to fly true, the shaft which is the body of the arrow, and the arrowhead which penetrates the target.
The use of the arrow design signifies respect for the martial arts.
And yet, from there stems the interest in the shape, and its use as a design.
Also, the fletched pattern found in the likes of the ceremonial "hamaya" arrow wards against evil and so means that it is bears significance as a talisman.
