Zande 1
The Kube is a wicker shield carried by the Zande Warrior, though it was not one of the Zande's official weapons.


The kube is a large, oblong wicker shield. The back of the kube had a central iron disk on which three or four kpinga were hung.


The Kube is large enough to cover most of the warrior's body, but was too light to offer substantial protection. As it is flexible, the kube could absorb some of the energy of light projectiles, though it was shown that the atlatl could pierce it deeply enough to hit the man behind it.
