Description

A large broad shield of light coloured light-wood. The surface of the face is convex in shape, fibrous and painted with a black cross along the central vertical and central horizontal axis. Areas outside the cross appear to have been smeared with brown, leaving the inter-grain areas light in colour and the raised areas brown. The back is fibrous and flat.
