INDO635: Dayak War Shield

A beautiful 19th century Dayak war shield. There are ten intact woven bands of rattan, and a central rattan piece that would make the shield very strong and stop it from splitting when hit with a sword or a spear. This is a real fighting shield for the headhunter warrior. The front has a natural red pigment that has worn off in some areas. The back has the red pigment only on the top section. The overall patina is very good from age and use.     

50" tall by 12 1/2" wide. 19th century, Borneo, Indonesia.    ....Sold
