This deer skin shield is hand painted with a warrior chief on horseback. His coup stick decorated with feathers, his feathered bonnet with buffalo horns are all signs of victories. This chief rides his war pony who is also painted to show his power. This unique piece is tied with leather straps to a hand fashioned natural bentwood frame. A really wonderful one-of-a-kind piece. Shield measures 15 inches in diameter.
