Amazigh Jewelry Shines in Doha Exhibition, Celebrating Moroccan Culture

Doha—The “Berber Jewelry from the Royal Palace” exhibition made its international debut from February 21 to May 20, 2024, at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, garnering significant acclaim.

This event, marking the start of the Qatar-Morocco 2024 cultural year, was organized in collaboration with the National Museums Foundation (FNM) and supported by Morocco’s embassy in Qatar. It aimed to serve as “a unique window on Moroccan culture” and to highlight the “strong and historic ties between the two brotherly peoples and the two Heads of State,” King Mohammed VI and Sheikh Tamim Ben Hamad Al Thani.

The exhibition featured an impressive collection of silver jewelry from the Moroccan Oudayas, part of the permanent collection at the Musée National de la Parure in Rabat. These pieces paid tribute to the artisans who meticulously crafted them and the women who have preserved these traditions. The exhibition allowed visitors to engage directly with these exceptional pieces, offering a deep dive into Morocco’s rich heritage.

Visitors, including both tourists and Qatari nationals, expressed their pride in discovering Amazigh jewelry, a significant aspect of Morocco’s cultural legacy. To commemorate this unique exhibition, a film showcasing the 200 pieces of jewelry was produced, aiming to reach a global audience.

The “years of culture” initiative, under which this exhibition falls, seeks to strengthen relations between nations through cultural exchange, with each edition featuring a partner country. This year-long cultural exchange will include major art exhibitions and cultural events in both participating countries.

As part of this program, Morocco plans to highlight its expertise in various fields such as know-how, culture, architecture, gastronomy, and the arts through a series of activities throughout the year.
