HOW TO HANG SHIELD
On the rear side of each shield is a thick, arm fitting handle. We recommend using garage hooks that can be found almost anywhere online. The hook shown in our images is from “CoolYeah” which has worked perfect for displaying all our shields. Please note that the hook "IS NOT" included in this purchase.
Our Bamileke shields originate from Cameroon and constructed 100% by hand with great attention to detail by our Artisans. These shields and designs have been used by many warriors and date back to the 14th Century. The shields are no longer used in battle but rather used in a variety of traditional ceremonies such as weddings and passage to adulthood. Using a chisel on lightwood, unique and linear patterns are crafted out, creating striking visuals that can be used in almost any interior space.
Today the shields are highly demanded and used for many interior design projects across the globe. As mentioned above, the shields are handmade and minor imperfections are usually common such as chips/dings.
