Buried beneath the earth, expertly mounted on museum walls, or artistically accenting a fountain in a secret corner of an ancient medina, mosaics are found throughout North Africa. A mosaic is an intricately designed picture or pattern created with hundreds, even thousands of smaller objects like coloured tiles or stones. The Romans would use mosaics to decorate houses, depict their gods, and beautify places of worship. This ancient art is still being practiced and they flood mosques, homes and public spaces with colour and artistry.
A good mosaic is a miracle of unity, using a myriad of smaller fragments to paint a bigger picture. Just like a beautiful mosaic, North Africa is a fusion of languages, cultures, traditions, history, and religions that has created one of the most fascinating masterpieces on earth. Each exotic element contributes to this unique world that is awaiting your discovery.
