Thumbs up

Hello Charles,

Thanks for your comment!

The shield I am less convinced is Moro. Fifteen years ago I would have insisted it was Moro as a result of the hand and arm grips, but now I have seen far too many of the same type of shields from all over SE Asia, including Burma, Thailand, and Indonesia. Their construction is generally similar to what you see here but may alter in detail to some degree.

You certainly have a point here - rattan shields are known from many cultures in SEA. It would be great to see details, especially from the backside to allow for some detailed analysis! Certainly a dedicated thread would be best as not to detract from the panabas.
