The discouragement of representative art by Islam led on the one hand to the development of calligraphy, and on the other to graphic forms of expression derived from ancient roots applied to all areas of creative expression.
Decoration of kinds was known as nakis, and applied to every area from architecture to the minor arts, from books to tiles, and fabrics to weapons.
Sadece mutlu saatleri sayarım
-I count only the happy hours
- Horas tibi serenas
Fırtınanın şiddeti ne olursa olsun, martı sevdiği denizden vazgeçmez
No matter how strong the whirlwind, the seagull will not abondon its beloved sea
Bir katredir ancak aldığım hep,
Derya yine durmada lebalep.
The things I've chosen are a drop,
no more; the undiminished sea
still crowds the shore.
