This beautiful hand-painted wooden shield featuring an original design inspired by Viking shields of old. It features a heavy metal disc/boss in the center, and has stainless steel studs lining the border. Dual leather straps are used to secure the arm along the backone going over the forearm and one intended to be gripped or held. An example of the straps and backside can be seen in the second photo. The shield is made out of a 1/2 inch thick smooth composite wood which is considerably stronger than plywood.The front of the shield has also been applied with several coats of topcoat/varnish to protect it through the years. It measures about 25 inches in diametermore than enough to cover your arm way past the elbow. Whether for the wall or the battlefield, this shield is well balanced and ready to serve. This item would be perfect for that upcoming Renaissance Festival in your area.
Or some backyard brawling between friends.... Trust me, pictures can't do this wonderful shield justice, or show the time that I put into building it. Would also make a great gift for that Renaissance-enthusiast you know! Remember, all my shields are individually painted, and are made one at a time. Nothing else comes close to the quality or authenticity of every shield.
