Touareg on Camel - Sahara

The Touareg people are predominently nomadic people of the sahara desert, mostly in the Northern reaches of Mali near Timbuktu and Kidal. They are often referred to as "Blue Men of the desert " - because their robes are dyed indigo blue.


The sword is a Tuareg's most valued possession. Many are passed from generation to generation and said to be protected by the victories of its past owners.
