Ben
45 x 55cm (17 x 22”)
Pure wool on 10 count canvas

White frame. Ready to hang.

This tapestry is inspired by the extensive and elaborately decorated Moroccan mosaic tiles (also known as ‘zillij’) at the Ben Youssef Madrasa in Marrakech, an important historic centre of learning. It draws on the impressive geometric and calligraphic designs seen throughout this ancient site, inviting the viewer to contemplate how intricate shading created with stitched wool can represent an ageing tile that dates back centuries.
