Beaded Cameroon Shield - Large
This beaded black Cameroon shield was historically used as a defensive weapon in wartime and displayed as a decorative symbol of status and wealth by the Tikar tribe. Meticulously crafted from one solid piece of Baobab wood, a sacred wood used for medicinal and ritual purposes for centuries. This large shield boasts hundreds of hand placed glass beads on manila string in a circular pattern around a dimensional cluster of natural cowrie shells in the center and edging. Each one of these shields are one of a kind, collaboratively crafted by a large group of tribespeople to make each piece truly unique.
This stunning hand made wall piece comes ready to be hung and is the perfect design piece for your home.
