Shields of Kokoberra


Shields were commonly used with fighting sticks by my people. They were often made of softwoods, like alligator wood, to absorb impact, and they could stretch from the head to the shins to protect the man during combat. The fighting was more than just men trying to hit each other. It was combined with amazing poses, stances, drops and blocks that look more like a dance than fighting.

More information

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
