HL Aiden O’Seaghdha has donated a hand painted shield to the 2014 Lilies’ Fireworks Fund auction held by HL Duncan Skeene.
The shield is a 19″ x 24″ curved aluminum center grip Buckler. It was painted with enamels and Acrylics with enamel clearcoat over the top for protection. The art was done in a 14th century style with figures taken from existing effigies, and a stylized Lilies skyline with exploding fireworks. The surrounding columns and arches are painted in metallic gold and copper enamels to allow those areas to “shine” in the sun similar to Gold Leaf.
The buckler has a stainless steel boss and is wrapped in black Trim Lok and para-cord, and can be a functional shield on the rattan or cut & thrust fields, or just displayed as artwork.
