Would you be happy with a high resolution image of the Thulsa Doom
dagger? (This is not a movie shot, but rather an 800x600 photograph of
the actual prop dagger.)

Are you talking about this scene?

I realize that that's a horribly long link - if you have problems
getting to it, try .

"Thulsa Doom's standard" is the long pole with the symbol of his doom
cult on top.  for clarity:

1. A flag, banner, or ensign, especially:
  1. The ensign of a chief of state, nation, or city.
  2. A long, tapering flag bearing heraldic devices distinctive of a
person or corporation.
  3. An emblem or flag of an army, raised on a pole to indicate the
rallying point in battle.
  4. The colors of a mounted or motorized military unit.

the icon on top of his this staff is similar to the one on the amulet
found in the great snake's chamber, but not quite the same.  i am
looking for the pole standard.

I understand.  I was just wondering if the scene shown was the scene
from the beginning of the movie that you were talking about. 
Additionally, if you look at the image behind him, it appears that it
is a stylized version of the standard.  Right now I'm trying to lay
hands on a copy of the movie itself so that I can get a screen cap for
you - hopefully before the question expires!

Dear chronocide-ga,

I think I have just the thing you're looking for.  I've put a sreen
capture of the top of one of Thulsa Doom's poles online at .  This is from the
end of the scene at the beginning of the movie where Thulsa Doom's men
pillage the village in which a young Conan lives.  It is a closeup of
the top of the pole.  I didn't notice any good shots of the entire
pole, but I'd be happy to look again if you'd like.

If this is not what you're looking for, please request a clarification
and I can attempt another screen capture.  Please note that the file
will only be available on that server for 30 days, so you probably
want to download it to your computer.  In most web browsers, you can
right-click on an image and "save file as" in order to put it onto
your computer.

Search strategy used:
I borrowed a friend's copy of Conan the Barbarian.  ;)

Thanks, and have a great day!

I suspect that you're not looking for the dagger in any case, so I
will offer it here for free, in the hopes that you can get something
out of this:

The image is from this page:

No.  I am not looking for the dagger.  I already did the google image
search and came across that.  specifically thulsa doom's standard is
required to close this question.
