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 Celtic Cross. The Celtic cross is a form of Christian cross featuring a nimbus or ring that emerged in Ireland and Britain in the Early Middle Ages.
The four arms of the Celtic cross are thought to be representative of the four directions of the compassions, the four elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water, and as representation of our mind, soul, body and heart.
Similar crosses have been associated with European continental areas of Celtic culture, such as Normandy, Brittany, or Auvergne in France, or Asturias and Galicia in Northern Spain, among others.
The triangular shield, known as a kite shield, is double reinforced steel with triple reinforced corners. Beautifully embellished detailing of riveted golden studding 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
