Troy, Brad Pitt Achilles Hero Shield from the movie

original movie prop weapon

This is an original screen used Hero shield as seen and used by Achilles from the movie Troy.

Shield Details: It is made from fibreglass which is both lightweight and very tough. The face is realistically painted to give the appearance of bronze. The long repeating pattern is a recreation of Achilles sword with an extremely detailed scene to the centre featuring figures at war.

The shield is circular and measures 80 cm in diameter. As with all Trojan shields of that period, there are two distinct semi-circular cuts made in the edge opposite to each other, this is an ingenious design which allowed the user greater protection when engaging the enemy while carrying a spear.

 

This particular shield appears to have been used for a special effects sequence at some point as there is evidence of arrow holes that have since been patched and painted for further filming. The reverse of the shield has a soft black foam rubber with a solid wooden grip for the actor. There are also four gold coloured rings with thick leather binding.
