SW-23 Shield

Mendi Valley, Southern Highlands, PNG.

These motifs, two central circles, tringles above, and semi-circles below, are the most typical found on Mendi fighting shields. This is a fine old example with good patina on the back. Despite being abstract, there are underlying anthropomorphic and other meanings.
