Collection titleAmazigh decorations and tattoos
First broadcast date10/20/2005
AbstractThe symbols used by the Amazigh people in Morroco are derived from their surroundings and environment in the mountains. These symbols are used by women in weaving carpets, tattoos either on the body or on plates, pots, walls and doors. Mohamed Sijilmassi, a Dr and Researcher, spent several decades counting and classifying Tattoo symbols. He came to the conclusion that tattoo symbols differ from one tribe to another and so these symbols are references to identify a specific tribe or a region among the Amazigh people. Wool yarn/ weaving/ folk paintings.
