THE ART OF ORNAMENT

THE ARCHITECTURE OF NORTH AFRICA NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME. THE DELICATE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND ORNAMENT PUNCTUATED WITH PIGMENTS RECALLING THE SEA OR SAND REVEALS AN ANCIENT CULTURE ALIGNED WITH IT'S NATURAL SURROUNDINGS. ANTIQUITIES FROM THESE REGIONS ARE STILL VERY RELEVANT IN MODERN SPACES AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO CREATE LAYERS AND DEPTH THAT HARNESS A CONNECTION BETWEEN OLD AND NEW.
