Dinka shield - the "original model" of a wooden pole shield with a concave handle in the middle arose from the necessity of parrying with a piece of wood while protecting one's hand at the same time. Fist protectors together with fighting poles and clubs were used to settle disagreements within the tribe. In armed conflicts with neighboring tribes, however, larger leather shields were employed.
