(фрагмент картины с змеями, целующими яблоко познания)

В России эта талантливая семья  практически не известна. Я познакомилась с младшими сыновьями Ильхама Аталай, тоже художниками, практически случайно. Шел жаркий стамбульский день, на крыше какого-то старого заброшенного чердака копошились котята, я их фотографировала (не могу пройти мимо кошки :)   )... Потом я увидела какую-то дверь, обклеенную красивыми разодранными постерами и ради интереса зашла... потом коридор, потом двор, где тоже копошились в винограднике котята и пили чай симпатичные молодые люди, с которыми я начала общаться. Они оказались художниками, сыновьями известного Ильхама Аталай. Оказалась, я зашла в галлерею с черного входа.

На Facebook их можно найти введя в строку поиска     İlhami Atalay Sanat Galerisi

А я собственно опубликую те фотографии картин, которых почему-то нет на их сайте и на фэйсбуке.

I dedicate this year to Francis of Assisi, the patron of my confirmation, and to fraternity with my Muslim brothers and sisters, whom Francis met in holy dialogue:

I made the remark above before reading Orhan Pamuk’s memoir, Istanbul, Memories and the City, but now I’ve changed my resolution and declare that I dedicate this year to solidarity with Francis and with Islam itself. To some who have read this excellent book, mine may seem a surprising reaction to this memoir by a fairly secular modern Turkish novelist, but Pamuk is a very great writer, which means he can be unflinchingly honest about himself, his society (rich, Westernized Turks) and what people of his background have DONE, in concert with Westerners (his “tourists”) to the great masses of the pious poor living in Central Europe and the Middle East.

And, so, I dedicate this year to solidarity with my brother Francis, the only world-historically significant figure who has ever been able to reconcile devotion to Christ with solidarity with the Muslim peoples AND to solidarity with their religion and its Holy Prophet (PBUH).

I can only echo the sentiments of the great popular historian Thomas Cahill, writing about Francis’s great adventure in inter-faith dialogue. The Sufis quickly recognized him as their spiritual brother. As it did for him, let the piety of the REAL Muslims put our irreligious “westernized” ways of life to shame:

“Those who are confident of their faith are not threatened but enlarged by the different faiths of others. ... There are, surely, many ways of arriving at this generosity of spirit and each faith may need to find its own.” We stand in desperate need of contemporary figures like Kamil and Francis of Assisi to create an innovative dialogue. To build a future better than our past, we need, as Rabbi Sacks has put it, “the confidence to recognize the irreducible, glorious dignity of difference.”

May the Lord give you peace.

Salaam Aleykoom!

I'm a young American Muslim who is sick and tired of only hearing about Islam in headlines. So I've started a new line of clothing and gifts that is geared towards young, modern Muslims who are ready to make their own headlines. Some political, some funny, some religious, and lots of ARABIC! So check it out, please spread the word if you dig it, and check in periodically for new designs.

And if you like it, WEAR IT WITH PRIDE!

I'm moving to Bodrum for 3 months this summer. Are any of you living in or near there?

Take a look at: this

Charles Gleyre; Angelica

Theodore Chasseriau; Two Young Jewesses Rocking a Child

Jean-Leon Gerome; Whirling Dervishes {They're actually called Semazen;for their dance is called the Sema}

Jean-Leon Gerome; The Bashi-Bozouk Chieftain {BaşıBozuk is a curse word meaning a person or organisation which is not directed well or isn't organised. Here it is a chieftain of an Ottoman order}

Gerome again; here's a Bashibozuk seen singing&playing. I like this painting far better than the previous portrait.

Pablo Picasso; Jacqueline in a Turkish Jacket

Amadeo Preziosi; Adile Hanim {Lady Adile}
