AF548: Ethiopian war Shield

War shield from the Arrusi people of Ethiopia. A fine round example with high relief bump pattern, and intricate surface patterning. The buffalo hide is formed into a purposeful pattern that may distinguish the status of the owner. There are some small native sewn repairs and the patina is good and dark from age and use.     

30" diameter. 19th or early 20th century, Ethiopia, Africa.
