Hand Carved Asmat Head War Shield


Carved wooden shield.

Available on back-order


These Indonesian tribal war shields with their symbolic heads at the top were traditionally carved prior to a headhunting raid; they’re now usually hung near doorways to keep evil spirits at bay.

Individually hand carved in characteristic high relief style, these replica shields are decorated using natural pigments which leave a chalky residue and are then aged, meaning that each piece is unique.  Please note that these items may differ slightly in design and finish to the image shown.

No hanging fixtures supplied.
