Shield Maker Marty Lovins (+playlist)
Marty Lovins has been making shields for three decades. In November, 2013, I sent him a new translation of The Iliad with a burnished illustration of Achilleus’ shield on the cover. Never interested in discussing his shields, he responded with a telephone call to come to his studio and bring the camera. During the four months that he actively worked on the shield, he would call me as the making of the shield progressed. This film covers the time period from 5 Dec 2013-27 March 2014.
