Before the use of firearms, the shield was used to protect against the blows of arrows, spears, swords, mace and mace in wars. Ancient Turkish shields were round, rectangular, pot-bellied or fluffy, and took various names according to the material from which they were made. Iron ones were called hacefe, those on which leather was stretched on the reed were called dereka or matrak, and round shields made of steel were called sails, the fluffy ones of this genus were called domed. The production of the shield and the decoration work on it had a great importance in Turkish handicrafts.

The motifs on the Fetih Mini Kalkan were inspired by an Ottoman shield from the 16th – 17th centuries with a workmanship in the style of palace jewelery, a unique example of Turkish art. The work is exhibited in the Hermitage Museum in Russia today.
All of the relief designs on the Fetih Mini Shield are handcrafted and decorated using 24 carat gold, leaf and antique paints.
