An old and larger than average soft wood Dayak war shield painted with anthropomorphic figures and faces in red, black and white pigment. This item was made during either the 19th or very early 20th Century. Condition: very used; un-restored and un-repainted. There is much wear to the surface and edges and the decoration appears "faded". There is a very old replacement section of wood to the bottom left which appears to have been "cannibalised" from another old shield. Whilst most of the original human hair decoration is missing, on close examination a few remaining hairs can be found adhered to some of the smeared old resin glue. For many additional pictures please view #1149 in our Liverpool shop website at 69aliverpool.co.uk 157cm (61.75 inches) high; 29.5cm (11.5 inches) wide.
