Personal proctection, ceremonial use
|Behind the Scenes|
Although the shields are effective as protection, their ceremonial use has become more and more important as battles between Na'vi clans have become mostly a thing of the past. All shields are highly decorated, but ceremonial versions are woven with traditional patterns that depict a story from Na'vi history or mythology.
Materials and ConstructionEdit
The shields consist of a wood structure held together with highly decorative woven materials. These materials include animal skin (including hexapede), plant fibers, twine, shells, and wood.
