DescriptionAlthough it was collected in Agadez, this emblem does not seem to have been made by a local artist. This cast brass emblem features a palm tree with a long trunk over which two curved swords are crossed. Small holes on the blades of the swords and the trunk suggest that the emblem was meant to be nailed or attached to something.
