Anatolian Cultures 

The Anatolian Cultures Series developed during 2011 and 2014, in the course of a travelling exhibition series named "Voyage to Anatolia" that started at the 3rd Gratitude to Anatolia Festival in the Village of Eternal Gratitude close to Konya, Turkey.

 

The two Antalya/Kas - based Artists Marlis Diemont (www.marlis-diemont.de) and Leyla Cansiz co-produced this series and resembled important symbols of Anatolian Culture, such as the "Şahmaran", a mythical figure that is half women, half snake, that originates from the regions of Tarsus and Mardin, the "Chimaera", a figure that can be traced in different locations, among them in the old ancient city of Olympos on the Lycian coast.
