Carved from one piece of wood, in Cameroon, shields like this were used for defense. Now they are more so used as decorative commemorative reminders of past important battles. The beautiful deep concise etchings have tribal significance. Though not at arms now the custom made armaments are very well crafted and make for excellent exotic wall decorations. The shield on display has been beautifully crafted from a native hard wood. The shield features precise raised symmetrical designs that creates an attractive grooved relief on the face and is punctuated with broad black paint on each end. This would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
