Mosaics & Genuine Craftsmanship
I've been taking pictures of stunning examples of Moroccan craftmanship like a madwoman, but here are a few shots of tiles and other handiwork at a huge Mosque in Casablanca. I think it's the 5th biggest in the world?
All the work was done by hand, by Moroccans, and it's simply overwhelming in person. You can take tours where they tell you about the details of many design elements, but I was too jetlagged to sit through one. Regardless, enjoy the images! I wish I could tile my floors! Oh! And import some chandeliers!
