Parlak ve Şans - Glans & Geluk



Seljuk Turks



"Parlak ve Şans- İslam Dünyasından Sanat" Sergisi 
Den Haag Belediye Müzesi'nde 900-1900 arası 300 parça 08 Eylül 2018 - 03 Mart 2019 sergilenecek.

Lakin, parçaların çoğu "Türk Kültürü ve Sanatı"na ait ! "İslam Sanatı" olarak adlandırılmasına şahsen karşıyım, çünkü "İslam" bir dindir ve birçok millet barındırır, ki sanat eserlerinde arapça veya farsça yazması da onu ne "Arap" ne "Fars" ne de "İslam" sanatı yapar! Sanat milletlere göre değişir ve "Türk Sanatı"nın kendine özgü bir stili var! Eserlerin Mısır'dan, İran'dan ya da Suriye'den olması da "o bölgenin halkına aittir", yani "Arap" ya da "Mısır"lı yapmaz ! Buna maalesef bizimkiler de dikkat etmiyor ve Türk Kültürüne ait ne varsa, hanedan, boy veya kavim adlarıyla ayrıştırılması dışında, "İslam" adıyla da "ötekileştiriyor"! "Parlak ve Şans" sergisindeki eserlerin bilgi içeriklerini bilmiyorum, ama netteki kısa bilgilendirmede "Türk Sanatı" yazmadığını söyleyebilirim.

"Glans en Geluk - Kunst uit de Wereld van de İslam"


Titelen als "İslamitische kunst" is niet correct, İslam bevat verschillende nationaliteiten !

Bijvoorbeeld:




- (hoofdfoto) "Moskeelamp met het lichtvers uit de Koran en titels van opdrachtgever, Syrië of Egypte, 1322-1328" ;
Turkse Kunst, behoort aan Mamluk Turks !
Ook als het uit Syrië of Egypte komt !





- "Tegel in de vorm van een ster, Oost-Iran, midden 15e eeuw" ;
Turkse Kunst, Ottoman / Safavid Turks. 
Ook als het uit İran komt, dat betekent niet "het is Perzische Kunst"!




- "Tegel met kalligrafie in reliëf (eretitels van opdrachtgever), Iran, 1200-1400";
Turkse Kunst, Seljuk Turks !



- "Schaal met arabeskpatroon, Turkije, Iznik, circa 1480";
Turkse Kunst, Ottoman Turks !




- "Schenkkan, Iran, circa 1200, kiezelaardewerk met lusterglazuur";
Turkse Kunst, Seljuk Turks !



- "Kom met kalligrafie en streepdecor, Iran, 1200-1250, kiezelaardewerk";
Turkse Kunst, Seljuk Turks !

link1: gemeente museum  /  link2: den haag centraal



Het meeste stukken van de tentoonstelling behoort aan Turkse Kunst ! Ben er persoonlijk tegen de titel "Islamitisch", omdat deze titel scheidt alle werken die aan Turkse Cultuur behoort van elkaar af! Arabische geschriften bewijst ook niet dat de kunst aan "Arabieren" of "Perzen" behoort!

ENG

Titles such as "Islamic art" is not a correct, İslam contains different nationalities! I am personally against the title "Islamic", because this title separates all works that belong to Turkish Culture! Arabic writings also do not prove that the art belongs to "Arabs" or "Persians"! Most of the exhibition belongs to Turkish Art!

For example:

- (main photo) "Mosaic lamp with the light verse from the Koran and titles from the principal, Syria or Egypt, 1322-1328 ";
Turkish Art, belongs to Mamluk Turks!
Even if it comes from Syria or Egypt!

- "Tile in the shape of a star, East Iran, mid-15th century";
Turkish Art, Ottoman / Safavid Turks.
Even if it comes from Iran, it does not mean "it is Persian Art"!

- "Tile with calligraphy in relief (honorary titles of principal), Iran, 1200-1400 ";
Turkish Art, Seljuk Turks!

- "Arabesque pattern scale, Turkey, Iznik, circa 1480 ";
Turkish Art, Ottoman Turks!

- "Pottery with luster glaze, Iran, circa 1200 ";
Turkish Art, Seljuk Turks!

- "Pottery, with calligraphy and stripe decor, Iran, 1200-1250 ";
Turkish Art, Seljuk Turks!

Wolf Dragons and Turkish Shot - Turkish Culture and Art



Relief of "Wolf-Dragon", 13th, Seljuk Turks, İnce Minareli Medrese Museum/Konya


In Turkish mythology and cosmology "Dragon" symbolize the Universe ("Evren"). This became later an expression to use for cosmos.  The word "Dragon" is in old Turkish (Mahmud al-Kashgari) "Büke / Böge" or "Yelbüke", is the origin of the word "Bükmek" (twist), "Bükülmek" (bend). Dragon evolved the Universe, he controls the time; "Infinite Time Cycle", and was the "Time God". Therefore, the Cycle of the Sky was associated with the "Dragon". The word "Evren" for the creature "Dragon" is used today with the word "Ejder / Ajdar".

Lets look at the word "Evren":
"Ev" = Home ;
"Evren" = Universe, Dragon (creature); 
"Evrim" = Evolution ; "Evrilmek" = To evolve
"Evirmek" = Turned around ;
"Çevirmek" = Turned, translate ; 
 "Evirip Çevirmek" an expression : 
example: (Bu işi) evirip çevirebilir misin? = Can you manage (this business)


Primitive human conception was not linear but cyclical. The creation repeated periodical every year; the continuity of the seasons, sun's rebirth, cycle of the moon. That brought the idea of "evolving, turning, timeless, endless great universe"; dragon was chasing his tail... İn Turkish cosmology the Wolf headed Dragon is also the master of the water and air, and the symbol of the state and sovereignty.

"Wolf-Dragons" was popular among Gokturks (see Bugut Monument, 7th c), Seljuks and Artuqids. But when it comes for giving info about it, always separated with "tribe names", and never used as "Turkish Culture & Art" in museums or articles. Which leads to confusion among peoples who does not know what Seljuks, Artuqids, Safavids or Mamluks are! /(They are just dynasty names, but Turk of ethnic). On the otherhand, a huge art-culture emerges when we combine the arts under "one name" as "Turkish Culture & Art", which was separated with "tribe names". But when it comes to  "Greek" or "Roman" Art, "they" (scholars, museums, etc...) combined all the "tribes" under "one name" !. That's just hypocrisy...

Me personally (and some) do not use the word "Turkic", because of the meaning: "The Turkic peoples are a collection of ethnic groups that live in central, eastern, northern, and western Asia as well as parts of eastern Europe. They speak languages belonging to the Turkic language family".

This is wrong expression, especially "collection of ethnic groups", because they are TURK of ETHNİC, and not some strange ethnic groups who came together.

Among us it is; "Siberia Turk (Sibirya Türkü)", "Altai Turk (Altay Türkü)", "Kazakh Turk (Kazak Türkü)" , "Uzbek Turk (Özbek Türkü)", "Saka Turks (Saka Türkü)", etc... and not like "Avar Turkic", "Kazakh Turkic", or "Turkmen Turkic", etc. ... The world is confused about the tribe names, they think that the "tribe names" are in "different ethnic". It is saying like; "Black American and African American" it is just simple "African", or saying like; "American English and England English", but it is just "English". This description applies the languages too: for example; "Kazakh language" or "Azerbaijani language" - There is no Azerbaijani or Kazakh language, both are talking in Turkish - dialect, but Turkish - just simple is that. Given different names "separate the ethics", which are "the same people, same ethnic" ..

Some Tribe names: 
Aqqoyunlu (Ak=White, Koyun=Sheep, Turkoman=I am Turk) , Karaqoyunlu (Kara=Black, Sheep, also written as Qara Qoyunlu, Artuqid (Artuklu), Zengid, Safavid, Afsharid, Seljuk, Ottoman, Pecheneg, Kipchak, Mamluk, Avar, Hun, Khazar, Cuman, Oghuz, Turkmens, Uyghur, Gokturk, Nogai, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Crimean Tatars, Qashqai, Yakut (Saha-Saka), Kumyk, Karachay, Gagauz, Tuvan, Uzbek, Karaite, Bulgar (before slavified), Atabegs, etc. and there are subgroups of these tribes with there clan or family names:

Example: Huns and Oghuzes have 24 tribes and many subgroups, like Ağaçeri Turks (Tree people: in ancient times as Agathyrsi, a Scythian+Hun tribe); or Oghuz tribes like Kayı (Ottoman comes from); Kınık (where Seljuk Turks comes from).... but all of them are TURK of ETHNİC. And many of these Turkish Tribes live in Turkey, and that's why it is called only "Turks". In Dutch they called as TURKSE VOLKEREN; the meaning is TURKISH PEOPLES, and that is one of the right expression.

They do call also as "Islamic", but religion is spread among differend nations. You have under "İslam Art" : Arabic Art, Persian Art, Malaysian Art, etc.... and you have of course Seljuk, Mamluk and Ottoman, but they are as İslamic represented by some scholars and in museum explanations. Somehow, determination of the political identity of the Turks is "Islamic", or with false ethnic identity, which is wrong...

So the art and culture must be written as "TURKİSH CULTURE AND ART", then with their dynasty, tribal or clan name but not as Turkic. So can the rest of the world understand in which ethnic these art and culture belong to...And yes, Hungarians and Turks are related. We are A Huge Family :)

* (Kazakça veya Azerice diye bir dil yoktur, Türkçe konuşurlar, bu sebeple "Azerice" yerine "Azerbaycan Türkçesi", "Kazakça" yerine de "Kazak Türkçesi" denilmelidir. Bu yanlışı maalesef bizimkiler de yapmaktadır!.)

A Reminding!
Do not promote or use other people's culture and art as your own! 
Cover of the book "History of Georgian Art", but this is not a "Georgian Art" it is Turkish Art & Culture.
This is simply a "forgery" !...
center: Seljuk Turks - 12th-13th c; right: Artiquid Turks - 13th c
* Arabic inscriptions does not mean; it belongs to "İslamic, Arabic or Persian Art!" 
And this "shot" is actually "Turkish Shot" and not "Parthian Shot", "culture on art" continues among Turks.
"Parthians" are also a Turkish tribe.




Turkish archery, escapes in front of the enemy, while galloping he turns back and shot the arrow. A war trick that was used among Turkish tribes. Turks lived on horse, sleeps on horse, traveled on horse, fights on horse, and they where seen as one: "Horse-man".... So, they create "Centaurs"... Like the Cimmerian and Scythian Turks...








Unbreakable records belongs to ;

Tozkoparan İskender (15th c) = 1281.5 (gez) /846 m.

and Bursalı Şüca (16th c) range 1271.5 (gez) 

Sultan Mahmud II (1785-1839), in 1817, he has taken 1200 (gez), and the American ambassador was surprised.
In the 19th century the criteria was fixed to 1 (gez) = 60.74 cm

European Archers record ;300 m. 
While a Turkish Archer could not have been nominated in the Ottoman Empire if it is not 600 meters....

Not a phoenix, but a rooster, and not "China Culture" as the museum says! Look for Seljuk Turks "Rooster shaped Vase"
(The word " T'u-küe " in Chinese sources is the word " Turk ".)

"A Turkish Warrior", Khazar Turks, Belt, 7th-10th c

"A Turkish Warrior", Seljuk Turks, 11th-13th c



A Turkish warrior with his horse "knotted tail", "Turkish-Shot", cylinder seal, 1000 BC
Those who do not want to admit that the "Parthian Shot" (and Parthians) is a Turkish tradition (and tribe) show immediately this picture. However, it writes "Steppe Rider" in the text above, and according to the fact, the Assyrians are not "Steppe Riders", neither are the Persians! (Persians are also to be seen first in 800 BC). 
Maybe Mongolians were in 1000 BC in Mesopotamia !!! :D :D
Because of the date (1000 BC) can not be named as "Parthian Shot",
Parthian name came first in the 3rd c BC on the records.
Three thousand years of Turkish culture and continuities in art ...

Not "Turkic" or "dynasty-tribe name", more accurate name to use is the "surname": "Turks" "Turkish", so...

Vergilius - AENEAS

Verg.A. 2.100-104 / çeviri İsmet Zeki Eyuboğlu

Sürdürdü suçlamayı Calhas yardımıyla durmadan,
Neye yarar bu sözleri söylemem anımsatmam?
Sözü uzatmam? Bütün Grekler eşitse gözünüzde,
Kim olduğumu duymanız yeter, öldürtün beni, budur,
İthacus'un dileği, büyük ödül verir Atridesler de.
Çok istedik olayların nedenlerini öğrenmeyi, sormayı,
Bilmezdik Pelasgların tuzaklarını, kuyu kazmalarını.
Titreyerek, düzmece bir içtenlikle sürdürdü konuşmayı:



* Neden orjinal kelime yerine "Yunan" kelimesini kullanıyorlar?
* Pelasglar "Grek" değildir ! ve yine de "Pelasg" kelimesini "Yunan" olarak tercüme etmişler!
* Bizimkiler de "Akha" kelimesini "Grek" diye çevirmiş, yani bugünün tabiriyle "Yunan" olmuş !
* Orjinalde "Teucria" (yani TÜRKİYE yazarken) bizimkiler Troyalılar olarak çevirmeyi uygun görmüş!
* Orjinalde "Dorica" yazarken, bizimkiler "Grek" diye çevirmeyi uygun görmüş!
* Kimlik Hırsızlığı ya da daha doğrusu "Etnik Hırsızlığı" !
* Diğer milletler söz konusu olduğunda ki, bunu özellikle Türkler için yaparlar; (yakın zaman için bile) Selçuk, Peçenek, Avşar, Artuk boy adlarıyla verilirken "Türk" kelimesiyle birlikte kullanılmaz. Halbuki Selçuk, Peçenek, Avşar, Artuk... "ADIMIZ" iken "TÜRK" "SOYADIMIZ"dır.
* Bilim dünyasında "İkiyüzlülük", 
* Ve bunu tüm antik dönem eserlerin çevirilerinde görüyoruz!



Verg. A. 2.100-104 /  J. B. Greenough.

Nec requievit enim, donec, Calchante ministro—
sed quid ego haec autem nequiquam ingrata revolvo?
Quidve moror, si omnis uno ordine habetis Achivos,
idque audire sat est? Iamdudum sumite poenas,
hoc Ithacus velit, et magno mercentur Atridae.”
Tum vero ardemus scitari et quaerere causas,
ignari scelerum tantorum artisque Pelasgae.
Prosequitur pavitans, et ficto pectore fatur:



Verg. A. 2.100-104 / Theodore C. Williams, Ed.

Nor rest had he, till Calchas, as his tool,-
but why unfold this useless, cruel story?
Why make delay? Ye count all sons of Greece
arrayed as one; and to have heard thus far
suffices you. Take now your ripe revenge!
Ulysses smiles and Atreus' royal sons
with liberal price your deed of blood repay.”
We ply him then with passionate appeal
and question all his cause: of guilt so dire
or such Greek guile we harbored not the thought.
So on he prates, with well-feigned grief and fear,
and from his Iying heart thus told his tale:


* Why do they use the word "Greek" instead the original word?
* When it comes to "other nations", they just use the tribe names, especially when it comes to the Turkish Tribes like Seljuks, Pechenegs, Artiquids... these are the names of the tribes, but the surname is "TURK" !
* Pelasgians are not "Greek"! and yet they translated the word "Pelasg" into "Greek" !
* Stealing the "identity", or more acquired "Stealing the Ethnic" !
* Hypocrisy in the scientific world!

Verg. A.2.21 / çeviri: İsmet Zeki Eyuboğlu

Tenedos derler ünlü bir ada, Troya’nın karşısında,
Varsıl, görkemli yerdi. Priamus krallığı çağında.
Şimdi önemsiz bir onarım, gemi yanaşma yeri.
Oraya sığınır, ıssız koyda saklanırdır Grekler.
Biz de sanırdık uygun yellerle Mycenae’ya giderler.
Sevinmiş bütün Troyalılar, gitmiş sıkıntıları, kaygıları,
Gezmeye çıkmışlar, görmeyince Grekleri, boş kıyılara.


* Verg. A. 2.21 /  J. B. Greenough. (Latin)

Est in conspectu Tenedos, notissima fama
insula, dives opum, Priami dum regna manebant,
nunc tantum sinus et statio male fida carinis:
huc se provecti deserto in litore condunt.
Nos abiisse rati et vento petiisse Mycenas:
ergo omnis longo solvit se Teucria luctu;
panduntur portae; iuvat ire et Dorica castra
desertosque videre locos litusque relictum.


Verg. A. 2.21  / Theodore C. Williams, Ed (English)

In sight of Troy lies Tenedos, an island widely famed
and opulent, ere Priam's kingdom fell,
but a poor haven now, with anchorage
not half secure; 't was thitherward they sailed,
and lurked unseen by that abandoned shore.
We deemed them launched away and sailing far,
bound homeward for Mycenae. Teucria then
threw off her grief inveterate; all her gates
swung wide; exultant went we forth, and saw
the Dorian camp untenanted, the siege
abandoned, and the shore without a keel.
