The exhibition at Doha’s Museum of Islamic Art showcasing a collection of Berber jewelry from the Royal Palace, marking its debut outside the Kingdom, underscores the profound ties between Morocco and Qatar, as emphasized by Mehdi Qotbi, Chairman of the National Museums Foundation (FNM).

“This marks the inaugural display of this collection beyond Moroccan borders, symbolizing the values of fraternity, friendship, and cultural exchange between our nations,” stated Qotbi during a press briefing held alongside the inauguration of the Berber jewelry exhibition at the Royal Palace. The event marks the commencement of the Qatar-Morocco 2024 Years of Culture.

Qotbi highlighted the cultural and aesthetic significance of this collection, which bears testament to the skill and craftsmanship of Moroccan artisans. He emphasized that the exhibition illuminates the richness of Moroccan identity, drawing from its diverse cultural heritage.
