Shields were seen to have medicinal, magic powers. Before battle, shields were sprinkled with herbs (muti). This was done to increase the protective power of the shield, to ensure that that the warrior came to no harm.
A modern take on the Zulu tradition, solid and sturdy at 12.1 gram, the sterling silver (92%) shield cufflinks with brass bullets are 3cm long and 1.8cm wide. Matching tie bars are also available. The Zulu Shield is attention-grabbing and a great conversation starter. Made in South Africa.
