Robin of Sherwood, Herne's Arrow / Silver Arrow - Series 1+2
Master Replicas movie prop
Ancient totem of pre-Christian England, Herne's Arrow or the Silver Arrow, was entrusted to Ailric, Thane of Loxley, during the days of rebellion. When Ailric is murdered by Robert deRainault, Sheriff of Nottingham, the arrow falls into his hands. The Sheriff is aware of its significance to the peoples. When the Hooded Man comes to the forest, the Sheriff recognises that Herne's Son will try to reclaim the arrow, so puts on an archery tournament and uses it as a lure to trap Robin.
Unbeknownst to both, the villanous Simon DeBelleme has sights on the arrow too, hoping to use its power for ill. Robin retrieves the arrow, returning it to Herne, only to be told that it is his protection. He uses the arrow to kill the sorcerer.
Later, the witch Lillith, once priestess to the Baron, enchants Robin to stealing the arrow from Herne's Cave. Using the power of the arrow she is able to resurrect the deceased Belleme. A magical battle ensues, resulting in a stalemate, but Robin once again manages to retrieve the arrow, due to a timely intervention by Herne.
There were several arrows used in the production, some wood, some metal. Their precise wherabouts are unknown. I own an early studio prototype and hand-drawn sketch of another early design idea.
This silver-plated replica was stunningly brought to life by collector and fan, Jonathan Deval, using the exact measurements, copious research material & referencing of screen captures of the production arrows. The result is a slightly reimagined, sleek and streamlined version, robust, and quite magical.
It is promised as a limited edition and comes with canvas carry case.
