The metal boss in the center is quite strong and has been polished to a mirror finish. Only the finest artist-grade paints were used in the making of this shield, and the background was carefully airbrushed to give in a nice sunburst fade effect.The main body of the shield is made of 1/2 plywood, which has been treated and stained a rich mahogany. Dual leather straps have been attached to the shield's backside, one going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped or held. A soft black fur has also been attached to provide additional comfort when holding. In order to further protect and preserve this shield through the years, a high-quality topcoat/finish has been applied to it.
Remember, this shield is of top-notch heirloom quality. It could be proudly handed down through generations. You just can't go wrong with this one.
