Anahtar Kelimeler: Divriği Ulu Mosque, Ottoman Palace Art, Art of Turkish Rugs, Naturalism


In the great variety and richness of the Turkish weaving art, Kilims appear as another artistic branch with their special technique and designs. Kilims which are woven by the nomads and villagers for their daily use and needs are known as the most typical and effective pieces of the Turkish Folk Art. Though these Kilims are named after various zones, their common property is the geometrical designs in which the character of the textile appears strongly. Anatolian Kilims derives their richness and variety from these geometrical designs which have been created through the subjective stylization of the Turkish Folk Art. The Kilims which we are going to introduce in this article are completely outside of the folk art circle with their naturalistic plant motives. They reflect the Ottoman Court style in Turkish Kilim Art.
