AF575: Ethiopian Shield

An unusual and very large Ethiopian war shield. The surface of the leather is tooled with decorations, and the edge is rolled. There is a faint circle pattern painted near the top. The patina is light suggesting that this is a later shield then the dark round ones from this area. This is an uncommon size and shape for Ethiopian war shields.     

Previously in the collection of Wolf-Dieter Miersch, Germany.

42" tall by 20 1/2" wide. Early to mid 20th century, Ethiopia, Africa.    ....$2000.00
