Basketry shield of elongated teardrop shape rounded top and bottom. The shield is woven in three colours; a natural rolled leaf, possibly Pandanus leaf, with a paler border woven into a chevron design and three separate areas of black Pandanus fibre woven into the central body. The black design is highly abstract on this example but others show it to be abstracted elements of a human figure. The arms legs and head dress are still identifiable. This example has two distinctive sets of three transverse black bands across its central section. At the present time the shield is mounted on a wooden board in a Perspex frame for display.
