For the riad Dombaraka (in french),
“pour les conservateurs de musée et les collectionneurs, il est irremplaçable. Dans sa modeste boutique, dépositaire de la mémoire, pourvoyeur de trésors arrachés au temps, il est de ceux qui savent encore, avec la modestie des grands, partager splendeurs et savoirs”.*
