The Steel Shield of El Cid Campeador by Marto, of Toledo Spain, is an ornamental triangular shield, known as a kite shield, made from steel and embellished with gold. Pointed at the upper part, this shield possesses a natural metallic finish that does not diminish its beauty. Instead, it merely makes the shield appear both functional and beautiful. At the shields center is a gold-plated metal sheet depicting the namesake of the shield and Spanish hero of the Reconquista, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, better known as El Cid Campeador. This depiction is produced in a relief, with rivets securing the plate to the shield. The shields edges are embellished with gold-plated rivets, while the edges are decorated with brief touches of gold-plated metal sheets. A shield fit for a hero, the Steel Shield of El Cid Campeador, by Marto, is a one-of-a-kind piece that is as eye-catching as it is appealing.
