Marinid decoration

マリーン朝のたたずまい

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

This capital is from the Marinid Sultanate from mid 13th to 15th century. During Almohad and Marinid era, Morocco was ruled by North African indigenous Imazighen (or Berbers) people and the architectural decorations are different from the Arab tradition. I want to visit and see these capitals with repeated spirals.

13世紀なかばごろから15世紀末まで、モロッコを支配していたマリーン朝時代の柱頭。このマリーン朝とひとつ前のムワッヒド朝は、北アフリカに起源を持つ民族の王朝でした。たしかに、アラブ起源の模様と少し違った趣きがあります。カタツムリが規則正しく並んでいるような、この模様のある空間を訪れてみたい。
