DINKA, SHIELD FETISH 4, 37", $800, Sudan

This object has been vetted as authentic, with clear evidence of extensive age and use.

This is a unusual object, a fetish, using a small hand shield as part of its magic. It is tied onto the staff of wood with reed-like material.  The animal form is attached to two small pieces of fabric that are stiched onto the staff.
