Description
Shield (1) - Leather, Rattan, Wood - Naga - Nagaland, India
2nd half 20th century - New

Beautiful original warrior shield from the Konyak Tribe in Nagaland, Longwa.
What was in the 80s from a pilot who travelled there. The colour on it is chalk, which shows that 4 heads were taken. I suspect it is a ceremonial shield. Very minor damage at the bottom, where you can see 2 small cuts.
All in all, a great collector’s piece.
