TURKISH ARTS TURKEY

Because of the Islamic influence, Turkish art is specialized in different branches of art. Drawing a figure was forbidden and it forced artist to use only floral and geometrical motifs. These motifs, patterns were applied as a painting, carving, weaving, inlaying, filigreeing or embroidering. But there are other branches that are lesser known such as book binding, jewel crafting, copper-making, calligraphy and Ebru (marbeling). During your tours, you will see or try to do some of them; but if you have special interest to any of them, we can make your own Turkish Art tour about desired branch.
