At 20 pounds, this may be the heaviest, prop replica we've ever offered. Know something else? It might be one of the coolest we're ever offered too.
An officially licensed, exact replica of the battle damaged shields of King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans. In fact, there are only 300 of these being made worldwide, one for each of the Spartans at the battle of Thermopylae. Those of you who know the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, or who have read Frank Miller's Graphic novel (or even seen a trailer of the movie), know that the shields of the Spartans took an arrow or two in that battle. When you face one million soldiers of the Persian army, you're bound to get a few scratches on your shield.
The shield is sculpted from poly-resin, precisely what the Spartans of the time would have used. It is exactly the same dimensions as the Spartan shields from Frank Miller's 300 -- about 3 feet in diameter. It bears an upside-down "V" across the front, symbol of the Spartans in Miller's graphic novel.
The 300 Spartan shield is a Limited Edition (only 300 worldwide).
