Err, actually, a Pavise is a Pavise and not a mantlet. A mantlet is a large, door like object roughly the height of a man without a central ridge, 2 different things.
What would a pavise be made of? What would the handle(s) be like? Can we see one from behind? How heavy would they be? What did they descend from? What followed them? Where were they made? IceDragon64 22:42, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
