Assouna Mosque- part of the Moroccan Mosque Exhibit by James Llewellyn

The current exhibit in the lobby cases of ZSR is an exhibit on Moroccan Mosques by James Llewellyn. Llewellyn is a Wake Forest Sophomore who traveled to Morocco and studied there. He wants students and other observers to learn about Islam from this architectural form. Llewellyn states that the Quran does not say anything specific about mosque construction. Therefore, most mosques have been inspired by geometric designs and Arabic calligraphy and try to create a beautiful natural setting. The photographs of the mosques are beautiful and Llewellyn states that many of the interior images have never been seen by a Western audience and could only be taken by a Muslim photographer. I encourage everyone to visit and enjoy this exhibit.
