MAASAI STYLE SHIELDS, Kenya

These shields are made of cattle hide (the Maasai are herdsmen), stretched on a bent wood frame, then shaved and/or painted into unique patterns. They have been made for the art market rather than for use by the Maasai themselves.

We recommend African Warriors by Thomasin Magor (Abrams). We have copies for sale at $35.
