Wooden, plank shaped shield from Western Australia, with rounded ends top and bottom and parallel sides. The grip is carved from the wood at the back to form a loop. The face of the shield is decorated with shallow grooves throughout, sets of five grooves run horizontally across the face of the shield breaking it up into seven panels. Sets of five grooves then fall diagonally either to the left or right alternately in each panel and are painted red and white alternately. The overall impression is a herringbone effect.
