DESCRIPTION:

ALBA GU BRÁTH! Is a Scots gaelic phrase used to express allegiance to Scotland, when translated into English it means "Scotland forever", literally "Scotland until judgement'. Scottish clans are commonly believed to have used this as as a war cry, especially during the famous "Highland Charge". This targe is both decorative and functional.

FEATURES UNIQUE TO THIS PRODUCT:

The targe measures 19.5" in diameter, just over 1/2" in thickness and is covered with tooled leather face. This targe displays three different types of Celtic interlaced knot work and has a solid brass boss fastened with gold coloured nails. This targe displays eight circIes of two variant sizes - the larger circles are embossed with deep intricate Celtic patterns, whilst the smaller circles contain embossed Celtic triquetras arranged in a circular style. Between each of the circles are Celtic knot work triquetras in one of the most common ancient styles. In relation to Celtic art, triquetras are found in similar artwork on Celtic crosses and slabs from the early Christian period.

This targe can be fitted with a spike at an extra charge of $40.
