This shield  is from southern Ethiopia. The Konso is about 500 miles south of Addis Ababa.

It is made of one piece and has behind a leather handle.

This type of shield was used during wars or during funeral ceremonies. “The symbolic battle against death”. With little or no effect against firearms, a shield went into the background as a tool of defense, but still keeps a utility during traditional ceremonies and funerals.
