Moroccan zelij mosaic wall / doorway tiling, Bahia Palace, Marrakesh, Morocco, 2016–04-21.
The name Bahia means “brilliance” and the Bahia palace was built with the intention of being the most brilliant palace of its time. Built by two different generations - Si Moussa and his son, the layout and overall design is slightly random and unorganised. The materials used to make the intricate displays of zelij, ceramic and wood work through out the palace were sourced from across the Maghreb.
