"Market at Marahui"

Here's a photo taken in Marawi, Lanao del Sur in 1898. It is part of the Parker Hitt Photograph Collection, University of Michigan, Special Collections Library. Zoomed in, you will see a Moro kris pommel similar to that above.

Thumbs up Well, those are both gorgeous kris!

Well, those are both gorgeous kris! The man straddling the word 'market' is also wearing an edged weapon - I do enjoy those pictures from back when the manner of costume varied widely across the globe.

It looks like every man there was armed to the teeth.

An armed society is a polite society.
