Default Rare Vietnamese shield

Hello - I have had a run of luck again picking up this rare Vietnamese shield.

Bit of a story but originally sold as a modern native American Indian shield with two other items that were native American. Well I was outbid at auction but was able to do a very satisfactory deal with the buyer afterwards. Described now as an African shield.

Anyway this is a shield that I understand is from Montagnard highland mountains of Vietnam/Laos.Minority tribes and is likely a ceremonial dance shield. I have seen a few example around for sale and also old photographs where this type of shield is present.

This rare example measures 47cms across.

Thanks
