Traditionally these shields were used as defensive weapons and also as decorative or ritual objects, which in Cameroon symbolise status and wealth. Hand carved from one piece of wood and decorated by large groups of locals making up the Tikar Tribe makes each shield a unique piece. The shields are adorned with a combination of beads, cowrie shells and manilla string.
No matter what your design preference is these artisanal pieces are without a doubt conversation points in any space.
