Guaranteed 100% Authentic and legally obtained Indian artifacts.

Very fine and rare set to have both the shield and the spear used by a Masai warrior for self protection and to hunt lions.

The shield is 43" long and 28" across. The interior of the shield has a raw hide thong and stick frame with the artists name done in beads and shells. More photos upon request. The shield still has most of its original paint on the front of it in the shape of a lions face. This is a fantastic piece of African tribal art. The double end spear has a 38" lance blade made of cold steal on one end attached to an Ebony wood??? handle with a 27" Pike or spike on the other end. All hand forged. Absolutly awsome weapon for protection against the elements.

Just to think that these items were used to hunt lions it makes me think of deepest darkest Africa during Mr. Stanley and Mr. Livingstons time.
