Round Gold Greek Lambda Shield with Greek Key Border
This beautiful hand-painted wooden shield features a classic Greek Lambda design over a rich metallic gold background with a "hammered metal" appearance. The 3rd picture shows the shield in a different lighting to give you a better look at the reflective metallic gold. The shield also has a very intricate "greek key" border design around the edge of the shield. 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.
