Round Gold Greek Lambda Shield with Triangle Border Pattern
This beautiful hand-painted wooden shield features a classic Greek Lambda design over a rich metallic gold background with a "hammered metal" appearance. The shield also has an alternating black and red triangle border pattern which can be seen on many ancient Greek shields. It is made out of a 1/2" thick smooth composite wood which is considerably stronger than plywood. Dual leather straps are used to secure the arm along the back (with one strap going over the forearm and the other intended to be gripped or held). The front of the shield has also been applied with several coats of topcoat/varnish to protect it from wear. It measures about 25 inches in diameter. So whether for the wall or the battlefield, this shield is well balanced and ready to serve.
Please note that all of our shields are individually crafted, and are made one at a time. Nothing else comes close to the quality or authenticity of every shield. As this shield is a Made to Order item, please allow an extra 7 to 10 days for it to be constructed and painted.
