The artifact is mounted in a dark brown, wooden case with a glass front and a black background. (Note: glass front of case was broken during 2003 move - artifact was removed from case and placed in Cabinet C until case can be repaired). The artifact is a shield shaped piece with miniature artifacts representing Philippine culture mounted on the shield background. The cloth in the background is currently a tan velvet. A few pieces have shifted showing the background was once dark red. The top and near the top of the shield is decorated with ivory. The miniatures are mainly weapons including 2 types of shields, spears, swords and arrows but also include a few non-war items such as clothing. The miniatures are numbered and correspond to a list of 62 items in the Museum Files "McFadden." Unfortunately, this list is in Spanish. The file also includes another note with the old cat. number discussing the collection of the artifact. Unfortunately, most of this is abbreviated making the meanings unclear. Accession File states: "Display of miniature articles representing Philippine culture D.W. McFadden Collection Presented by Clyde and Fred D. McFadden, April 20, 1931."
