Fez—and an ode to the soul of Morocco.

August 9, 2010

Fez. Oh Fez!

Described by many as “the soul of Morocco.” Fez, a city of cracked and dusty streets that hide all kinds of beautiful and forlorn relics. Mysterious and mystical. Faded but stately. Crumbling but proud. Fez…

As Bowles put it, an “enchanted labyrinth sheltered from time,” Fez manages to reveal its beauty, while still remaining hidden. Fez speak in symbols, you see? The symbols that encrypt the meaning contained in the patters of hand-knotted carpets; in the voices of traditional Sufi and Gnawa singers; in the cosmic swirls of carved plaster of its architecture; in the tattooed faces of Berber women.

Fez… A place with a soul. The soul of Morocco
