Photographer's Note

The gates in Marrakesh echo and develop the theme of the mihrab. Their arches are framed within a horizontal rectangle and the spandrels are either blank or decorated with flowers and foliage geometric or shell motifs. The horseshoe arch and less commonly the semicircular arch is set within several multifoil curves or curves formed with alternately projecting and indented arch stones.
