Dance of the Moorish Princess

Share

I drew this dancing Moorish princess on the day Disney's rebooted live-action version of Aladdin hit theaters. Originally, the Moors (or Mauri) were an African people occupying an area within the territories of modern Morocco and Tunisia. Later in history, Europeans would use the term "Moorish" as synonymous with darker-skinned people in general (hence the word "blackamoor"), Muslims of any ethnicity, or the succession of Islamic dynasties which took over and dominated most of Spain during the Middle Ages.
