Zulu Shield Drawing

Below we have a selection of African Zulu shields crafted by traditional Zulu craftsmen from South Africa out of Nguni cow hide. Nguni is the local cow found in Southern Africa and is known for the variety of patterns and colours that is found on the hide. These Zulu shields have the 3 clubs attached, the spear known locally as an Assegai, the ball club known locally as the Knob-Kerrie and then the center shaft known locally as Umboko.
