This wonderful Ramu River shield has the traditional raised narrow triangle of relief carving coming down from the top but in addition has a striking design in white pigments rarely found intact on shields from this area. The shield is an early example as evidenced by the well-worn backside with smooth patina and the roughly cut out holes to attach the carrying strap. The shield is ex. Alex Philips and is 53 3/8” (135.6 cm) in height, dates to the early 20th century or before and the price is available upon request. Questions?
