Description

A large broad shield of light coloured light-wood. The entire surface of both the face and the back has been engraved with parallel straight lines. The lines are organized on the face and the back to create a large X. The face has been marked by more than forty cuts, randomly placed but orientated horizontally. Both surfaces appear to have been painted black and red over the engraving, with the front being more faded than the back.
