Recently I have visited Marrakech, Morocco. This was my first journey to a Muslim country and I collected some very interesting observations. Of course Marrakech is a tourism hotspot and, in some parts, it even has a cosmopolitan feeling to it and therefore some of these observations may not even be extendible to the rest of the country.
It caught my attention that, like in most places, the people of Marrakech are not all equally religious or, at least, tend to religion in different ways. This was more evident in women whose attire ranged from the pious burqa to the most westernised revealing outfits with everything in-between walking side by side with each other. This drawing attempts to illustrate this gradient of female attitudes in Moroccan society which I found very interesting.
The drawing is also heavily inspired and, dare I say, a homage to one of my favourite graphic novelists: Marjane Satrapi, author of "Persepolis". [link]
