Reproduction of a fragment of an Iberian relief with a hand holding a shield. The original is dated to the 5th-4th centuries BC, it was found at the site of La Alcudia, Elche, and is currently on display in the site’s museum.
The relief shows only a fragment of the original piece which would have represented an Iberian warrior, of which only the part showing a hand holding the shield has remained. The details of the shield’s handle, topped with chains, can be seen.
The Iberian peoples inhabited the eastern and southern areas of the Iberian Peninsula from the first millennium BC until Romanisation. Between the 7th and 3rd centuries BC they reached their peak, developing their own art with influences from other Mediterranean peoples who settled on the peninsula, such as the Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians.
