Description

A large broad shield of light coloured light-wood. The entire surface of both the face and the back has been engraved with narrow parallel channels. The pattern is of curves and swirls with some areas of straight lines and some areas of thatch. There are traces of red paint on the face and the back. On the back some coloured solid material, red and orange, in-fills the channels. A large crack, running the full length of the back and intersecting the handle, has been filled in.
