This shield and others like it were carried by members of Saladin’s army during the final battle sequence where before Balian relinquishes Jerusalem to Saladin. Made of rubber, this grey coloured shield is round in shape and features several small rose-like ‘studs’ scattered around a patterned central point. The front of the shield features four ‘arrow holes’ which would have been intentionally placed in the rubber and an arrow placed in the hole for filming to appear as though it had been struck by arrows during battle. The back also features brown adjustable leather straps to ensure a good fit to the wearer’s arm, while a sling also allows for the shield to be worn by the wielder on their back.
Well used on the production and featuring intentional ‘holes’ on the front, the shield features signs of wear such as the fabric on the back of the shield becoming loose and unstuck around the edges and minor dirt marks on the back. However, in spite of this wear, the shield remains in a very good production-used condition.
