The Mofu tribe of Nigeria was particularly famed for their metal shields. Expertly forged, the defenses provided by metal far outstripped the wood and reed shields employed by many other tribes. As their craft developed, the Mofu began hammering out intricate geometric patterns. These subtle textures are invisible from a distance, allowing the simple form its own sculptural presence. As you approach the complex patterning emerges, offering a second rich experience of this unique object.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
