Best way to describe this is a very well done leather Shield, possibly Native American. What I have learned is that these were used for dance, and other rituals. I could not find the symbols for each of the designs.
I can say the detailed work is fabulous and very well done. At the top there is a large 6" rip due to age. I left the shield as I found it. The leather fringes have curled due to age. I am sure a leather softener will straighten them out.
The shield measures 28" from fringe to fringe. The shield has the front and a leather backing. Can be used as wall art.
