Anyone have a reference for Medieval Prussian (tribesmen) shields?

Heath's Armies of the Middle Ages notes that they were painted with basic designs but doesn't note any colors (probably as his reference is reliefs on bronze cathedral doors).

He also only has illustrations of three shields, one of which is not a solid shield and therefore shows no design.Anuy assistance appreciated.

There's a reconstruction at link but I have no idea if the colours are any good.
