Western Asiatic Pair of Bronze Umbo Shields

SKU: Umbo shield

This Western Asiatic pair of bronze umbo shields is a remarkable piece of ancient art that dates back to ca 1600 - 1800 BC and would be a unique addition to any collection of ancient artefacts.


These shields were used primarily for defensive purposes in battles and were designed to protect the user from enemy attacks but also used for ceremonial purposes. The intricate design and detailed craftsmanship of these shields are a testament to the advanced metallurgical technology of the Bactrian empire. These shields provide a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of the time.
