Elegant Noble Eagle Medieval Foam Shield
The eagle was a symbol born by men of action, occupied with high and weighty affairs. It was given to those of lofty spirit, ingenuity, speed in comprehension, and discrimination in matters of ambiguity. The wings signify protection, and the gripping talons symbolize ruin to evildoers. The eagle is held to represent a noble nature from its strength and aristocratic appearance, as well as its association with the ancient kings of Persia, Babylon and the Roman legions, having been the official ensign of those empires. This shield has been constructed to resemble a real Medieval Shield but without all the heavy lifting. This piece is constructed of a heavy duty Polyurethane Foam with nylon straps. Overall length is 21 inches.
