Above is a study I had done on location in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot a year or two back. While digging in the archive I read a few of the architectural details describing the building process and discovered something really cool! King Hassan II actually sent Moroccan artisans to Disney to design and create the many mosaics. (Also did you know, due to Islamic religious beliefs on the content of art, the mosaics contain no representations of people?) 

It really is a gorgeous pavilion. If you can’t get to Morocco firsthand, it very well could be the next best thing.
