Water pitcher and wash basin. As Moroccan meals are traditionally served from a communal serving plate without utensils, hand washing occurs before each meal.
The museum's curator is an amazing artist. His calligraphy is stunning.

Ancient Amazigh water clock. The smaller bowl fills (or empties) every 6 minutes. The palm fronds keep count for each 6 minutes.

 Ancient (still working!) Amazigh key.
