Almohad style


5 April 1952, Morocco
design & engrave: A. Delpy

This capital is from the Almohad Caliphate in Morocco in the 12 century, when Romanesque style was popular in Europe and capitals were decorated by a lot of faces and imaginary creatures. This Islamic decoration took a different path with plants and abstract patterns. Very stylish.
