The Southern Cross Tags and Charms

The Tuareg use charms in various variations all symbolyzing the constellation „Southern Cross“ (Crux). Every settlement uses their own variation. The Travelbugs of this series show charms of the settlements Agadez, Tahoua, Bilma and Abalak. These places all lie within todays Niger and can be shown using Google Earth.
