Default 3 strap Indian shield grips

I saw some interesting shield grips in some paintings illustrating the Akbarnama. As well as the usual two straps seen on Indian and Persian shields/dhal, there is a thicker central grip.

Any pointers to physical examples?

Details showing two grips like this are attached. The full paintings are at: her_Khan_Fuladi_(Left).jpg

Lots of art from the Akbarnama is available via Wikimedia Commons:
