Description

A large broad shield of light coloured light-wood. The entire surface of the face is dark, possibly because of weathering and water stains. There is no engraving. The entire surface of the back is flat, light coloured and has heavy water staining. The back is engraved with small ovals, horizontal in orientation but loosely and randomly placed to create an even spacing, placed between curving lines of “rivers”.
