Lost in green

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 !

Moroccan design patterns

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
