Description

The term Naga people refers to a conglomeration of several tribes inhabiting the North Eastern part of India and north-western Burma. The tribes have similar cultures and traditions, and form the majority ethnic group in the Indian state of Nagaland. The Naga tribes practiced headhunting and preserved the heads of enemies as trophies before the 19th century.

This shield was used by the Naga people on their hunting trips, during the last century. It is ornately decorated and remarkably well preserved and presented with no apparent damage.

Material: Wood Dimensions (HxWxD): 60cm x 31cm x 10cm
