Today’s blog post is about various pictures of oriental and Islamic patterns of the Hassan II Mosque . If you want to know more about the background behind this wonderful heritage , I wrote a specific post about It
Those pictures were taken in the region of Bensliman , Morocco . ( click here to discover more about this city )
I named this file ‘lost in green’ , because in this period of time all the fields are totally green . I was amazed by this vibrant color , to the point that I felt ‘lost’ in the beauty of those creations .
So I hope that I can transmit this amazing feeling , enjoy !
Probably , When you visit Morocco ( especially the old cities : Fes , Marrakech , Rabat , …) , you’ll definitely notice in different areas a collection of shapes , colors , patterns collected and organized in a very artistic and harmonic way .
// Shapes , and colors :
From neutral tones to vibrant shades , plus uncountable shapes . All those compositions can create a nice oriental atmosphere .
// Architecture and texture :
The geometric patterns could be found in ceramic , stone , plaster , wood , … and then transformed to decorate mirrors , ceilings , furniture , and doors .
// Historic background :
The influence of Islamic art , and arabesque decoration have been produced in the 7th century .
In Islamic countries , and particularly Morocco , geometric decoration has taken such a great importance .
This picture is from Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca , Morocco
