Tutsi Archers Wrist Guard 1159- Rwanda

Price: $395.00

Tutsi archers wore large wooden guards to protect their wrists from the bowstrings recoiling when firing their weapons. In addition to the protection the guard provided, the copper adornments pound- ed into the surface, and the exaggerated size of the object, suggests both power and prestige of a high ranking officer or possibly even a person of royal lineage.
