Saadi pattern


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

This decorated capital is from the Saadi Sultanate from early 16th to mid 17th century. It has shared aesthetics with Moorish architecture in Spain, such as the Alhambra palace in Granada. The style has similarities with the more familiar Islamic patterns used later and in modern times.
