11"wide x 6"deep x 16"high

These handsome shields are made from an indigenous wood called Kola wood by the Cameroonians who make them. The shields are hand carved reproductions of traditional Bamileki shields. They are carved from a single piece of wood and the patterns are dyed with a white dye made from chaulk. 

The shields are mounted in the United States with a black metal rod to a modern acrylic base giving the shield an ideal perch on which to be displayed.

Sizes are approximate due to the hand made nature of the shields.
