Native American War Shield

This Native American War Shield is made from cowhide wet-formed over a frame of willow branches. Everything is tied together with rawhide and the back is covered with a rabbit skin. Arm wraps to hold the shield are made from hair-on cowhide. Each image and color on the shield has a meaning.
