This is a "shield" because it is made with the intention of protection. The animal and the materials have significance in symbolic meaning and intimate association for the person attracted to the shield.

Mountain Lion is a symbol of leadership, stealth, agility and strength. White Pine is a symbol of peace, putting aside differences, releasing grudges and grounding for the long term. Goat symbolizes the ability to attain spiritual perspective, agility and determined focus.
