Our Painted Viking Shield is one of the best value shields available to buy in the UK. It is constructed from 10mm thick wood and features a wooden grip and steel boss with brass fittings. It is edged with brown leather to protect from sword and axe cuts.
The face of the shield is painted with Viking/Saxon style horse motifs. This could be done to identify the owner or his affiliations. This shield is a little on the light side for full contact re-enactment but is perfect for theatre and film work and great as a display piece.
