Description

Nothing quite attracts the eye like a grand shield hung over your mantle. But for those who do not have room for a full sized shield, all is not lost, because this Mini Cid Shield has all the detail of its larger cousin, at a fraction of the size! Patterned after the shields of the age, this impressive little replica has a stylized triangular shape that harkens back to the kite shields and heater shields that knights and warriors of all sorts would have favored when marching into battle. This miniature shield is crafted in steel and features a stylized coat of arms that most closely relates to the famous El Cid, known more completely as El Cid Campeador, or by his birth name, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar. El Cid was made famous as the central figure in the oldest extant Spanish epic poem known today. This impressive little shield features a quartered field of red and white. On the field quarters sits a salient lion (or a heraldic lion in the leaping position), while the red field holds a castle with three towers. The shield is ideally suited for hanging on the wall or decorating with, especially when you have a limited amount of space to work with but still want that historic or medieval flare. The shield measures approximately 11.25 inches tall and weighs in at about 12 ounces. If you are looking for the ideal way to include a little bit of medieval style in your decor, then look no further than this miniature shield. And if you know someone who wants to do the same, you are in luck, because this Mini Cid Shield works wonderfully as a gift to that special someone, too!
