The Shield is part of the Exclusive Collection 'Historic Shields' from Marto.
Ideal for collector's, this is an excellent wall display piece which can also be adapted for theatrical and TV use.

Exquisitely handcrafted in stainless steel with a natural metal finish.

At the shields heart is a Red Cross. The emblem of the order of the Calatrava. The Order of Calatrava was one of the four Spanish military orders and the first military order founded in Castile, but the second to receive papal approval. The papal bull confirming the Order of Calatrava as a Militia was given by Pope Alexander III on September 26, 1164. It was said that even when outnumbered more than ten to one, the Knights of the Calatrava were still victorious. The Calatrava Cross had truly protected them.

It is believed that he who harnessed the power of the Four Triads represented by the Calatrava Cross would find success in all areas of life

The triangular shield, known as a kite shield, is double reinforced steel with triple reinforced corners. Beautifully embellished detailing of riveted golden fittings and Red emblem against a natural steel finish, adds to the stunning contrast which make this shield so exquisite.

Comes with attached hanging chain on the back which allows for easy wall mounting
