Large Beaded Shield - Black with Manilla String and Cowrie Center

Traditionally these shields were used as defensive weapons and also as decorative or ritual objects, which in Cameroon symbolize 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.
