MADE51 Desert Moon Ornament, Crafted by Tuareg refugees in Niger
MADE51 works with five refugee artisan groups in Africa. This beautiful Desert Moon ornament is crafted by Tuareg refugees living in Niger. The metalwork used to create this crescent moon highlights impressive heritage techniques that are used to create both utilitarian and decorative objects. As nomadic pastoralists who traditionally inhabit a vast area in the Sahara Desert, the desert moon is a symbol of protection and prosperity.
