Viking shield with bind runes
Planked shield. Hand crafted in England. Beautiful bind runes shield...meaning from top right clockwise in the first picture...good luck, strength,protection and courage
24 inch, perfect size to handle, handmade with glued spruce planks NOT plywood, Viking shield with thick rawhide edging and riveted/nails (like was used by the Vikings). Steel black hammered boss is 12 gauge, 3mm thick and is an 8 inch circle, should be plenty of room if you wear a gauntlet.
Very well made piece, that will take a beating or a great display item.
