Lot # 868 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Achilles' (Brad Pitt) Shield

Stock #108757

Achilles' (Brad Pitt) shield from Wolfgang Petersen's mythical epic Troy. The Greek warrior wielded his shield throughout the film, notably using it alongside his sword during the beach battle sequence in which he slaughtered many Trojan soldiers and confronted Hector (Eric Bana) inside the Temple of Apollo.

Made of biscuit foam, the shield is round with two semi-circular cut-outs on opposing sides, which allowed Achilles to thrust with a spear while still protecting himself. Finished in black and faux-bronze paint, the face of the shield features intricate figures at war around the centre, with eight discs situated above them. A black wooden handle is affixed to the rear, alongside a strip of thick leather binding and four faux-gold rings. Signs of production use are present on the lot, including light scuffs around the edge and minor paint wear. Dimensions: 81.5 cm x 81.5 cm x 11 cm (32" x 32" x 4 1/4")
