Default Interesting and Unusual Buckler Shield from the Arabian Sea/ Red Sea Region

Here's an interesting shield from the Arabian Sea(Oman)/Red Sea region. It has a unique copper finial and protrudes about as far out(8.5in.) or more than any shield I have seen from the region. Its circumference is 11.5in. The handle is from wood, carved in an unusual manner, and sewn into the shield's form.

While this style of buckler is generally associated with Oman, they could also be found in Somalia and Ethiopia, likely via trade with Oman and Zanzibar. This one is rather unique stylistically.
