What a View: Morocco

During a recent trip to WDW, I found myself alone in the World Showcase, and I decided to circle the Lagoon and spend at least 10 minutes in each country, looking for one thing that makes me super happy.

So I did.

I found something in each country that filled me with delight, and I snapped a photo. And I’ve been sharing them with you, one each week. This is week four, which means we’re heading into my favorite Pavilion: MOROCCO.

Moroccan fire bellows (Mouse on the Mind)With all of the amazing, beautiful intricate art in Morocco, you may be surprised to see two fire bellows here. But like I said, I was looking for little details. And I have always, always been drawn to these pretty puffers. Long before I even knew what a bellow was for. I can’t explain why.

Also known as rabooz or a fire stoke, these are used to fire up the charcoal in the brazier. Basically, they’re totally utilitarian devices that insert a puff of oxygen into the fire, turning up the heat on the oven. But like everything in Morocco, they’re elevated to incredible pieces of art. The beautiful brass and leather details, intricate carving and bright colors make these stick out in my mind as an awesome and authentic piece of Morocco.
