Tableau signé Omar Mourabih

L'artiste gadiri a représenté un guerrier berbère ouvert sur le monde, qu'il regarde avec une loupe, tandis qu'il porte l'Afrique sur son dos et que son corps a la forme du Maroc. Si l'on supprime le Sahara marocain, il ne parvient plus à marcher

Le Jardin aux Etoiles, charming villa

We have devoted great care to the architecture, symbols and colors of our rental riad. The best of Moroccan crafts and art objects embellish the place. Ultimately, the Jardin aux Etoiles is a charming villa, in a green setting .
Architecture

The architecture of the Jardin aux Etoile is inspired by the great Berber tradition. The riad looks, with all windows open, towards the north, to seek freshness, while the south facade is completely deprived of openings, in order to preserve the freshness inside, respectively a certain softness in winter.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The four doors of the north facade are in the form of a mosque, itself taken up in the configuration of the swimming pool .

Symbols

Berber symbols are ubiquitous on the facades. The triangles and their point at the top represent the ancestral tent of the nomads, the house, the woman too. As for the diamonds, they refer to the eye, which protects, and which universally signifies the perception of the world.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The furniture, especially the tables, as well as the doors take up the Berber symbolism and the logo of the Jardin aux Etoiles, whose name is translated into tifinagh.

Colors

The dominant color is red , which is triumphantly exteriorized on the exterior walls. It is found in many combinations inside.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The exterior windows have adopted a water green color and all interior woodwork is ivory. The tadelakt that covers all the interior walls, including the Souss gallery , where they are done raw, comes in different shades of brown, red and goes squarely to white in the kitchen and Tiznit gray in the Salon Cinq mondes.

The best of Moroccan craftsmanship is found in the rugs, which also come from the Middle East. We also notice it in the wooden tables inside and those in varnished zelliges from Fez on the outside.

The lamps are also fine examples of the work of Moroccan artisans and the diversity of styles used. Quantities of trinkets, grouped for example in the light cabinet of the Salon Atlas , also express a know-how transmitted from generation to generation.

Art

Our riad gives a very large place to art, in particular pictorial . This touch appears from the entrance gate of the riad, finely carved with Berber motifs and the logo of the Jardin aux Etoiles. It is confirmed in the elements of embossed copper and terracotta which show the identity of the riad.

The Souss gallery exhibits sculptures by the young Berber artist Khalid Assalami . A finely carved stone mask from the Atlas adorns the back of the gallery, above a chest with necessarily Berber motifs.

In the Salon Atlas throne a composition by the artist Omar Mourabih representing a Berber warrior full of symbols. There is also a copy of a work by Jacques Majorelle dedicated to the kasbahs of southern Morocco.

The Salon Cinq Mondes is full of artistic testimonies from the five continents. It includes an oil by Marco Richterich representing London, works celebrating Lake Neuchâtel , a composition of Greek nudes from the island of Santorini and an original tissue paper dedicated to Taoism . On the wooden desk are a royal head from Ancient Egypt and a sculpture celebrating the Cambodian temples of Angkor. On the ceiling, a Murano crystal chandelier.

At the entrance of the Tiznit suite , we fall in awe of a monumental oil by Abdu Amenukal, painted especially for this place and which is inspired by a much smaller canvas by Jacques Majorelle entitled " The Kasbah of Anemiter " (sometimes spelled Anmiter or Animiter), which still exists, but much reduced today . Between the Berber green double bed and the window, we will note in passing a flamboyant and abstract composition by the Swiss painter Angi .

The Marrakech bathroom exhibits two compositions by Ivan Moscatelli on the theme of the palm tree and the great south.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The Taroudant room alone exhibits a dotted painting representing the Palmeraie de Tiout , a goatskin patchwork from the Taroudant tannery, a large carpet in the grand style in the spotlight at Taznakht, as well as a babouche giant red and white in the shape of a wink.

The kitchen is not left out! Just before the staircase leading to the first floor hangs a notable work, that of the Moroccan Amina, whose watercolor under glass represents a medina in difficult construction, an image of Morocco itself.
