The Wooden Medusa Buckler Shield is a beautifully hand-painted shield inspired by the gorgon of Greek mythology. Made from smooth composite wood, this shield is strong enough to withstand use while pretty enough to be a decoration. This attractive shield depicts the most infamous of the three gorgon sisters, Medusa. The image on the buckler captures Medusas likeness in its most terrifying form. True to myth, this Medusa has the face of a beautiful woman who was cursed by the gods. She has pale green skin, vivid orange-red eyes, and auburn hair, from which several snakes sprout and writhe aggressively. The shield itself is made from smooth composite wood, giving it considerably more strength and durability then can be expected of plywood. Several clear-coats of varnish have also been applied to the front, in order to protect and preserve the shield from wear. The back features two support braces, and a single leather strap that will accommodate one hand for use. This buckler is 12 inches in diameter, making it large enough for defense but small enough to be used quickly and effectively. It is the perfect choice to bring to the next Renaissance Festival in your area or to use during a training session among friends. The Wooden Medusa Buckler Shield makes a great gift for the medieval or Renaissance enthusiast, especially when you consider that the Wooden Medusa Buckler Shield is as much visual appeal as it is function.
