Cameroon Shield Round White with shells


The Cameroon Shield. Originally, these beautiful shields were an important part of tribal weaponry and they reflected the spirituality and
social beliefs of the people. As such they have great symbolic meaning and prestige.

The geometric designs were used to confuse enemies due to their dizzying effects.  This shield is so pretty with a cowrie shell in the centre and thousands of beads. 

The shields are handmade and will slightly vary in size and design and comes mounted on a wooden stand.
