Artworks from ancient civilizations in Turkey: Living sculpture sanctuary
In the Ottoman era, the city of Istanbul housed a vast collection of antiquities, from ancient tombs to the remains of the ancient city walls, from the oldest mosaics dating back 2,500 years to the largest mosaic at the world’s largest modern museum in Istanbul, the Bosphorus Bridge.
Now, the ancient monuments, sculptures, and installations have become the focus of a museum in the historic city, called Living Statue Sanctuary.
This sanctuary is located in the southern city of Antalya, which has a rich historical heritage and a cultural connection to the Ottoman empire.
As the museum opened in 2018, it has become a hub for the preservation of the world-famous living sculpture, or oud, and a home for more than 1,000 works, some of which are at the top of the market.
The museum also hosts other works from the Ottoman period, from frescoes to a large number of paintings and sculptures.
Among the works on display are a large group of oud sculptures dating back to the 12th century, and some from the early modern period, including a painting by a Dutch artist, known as The Art of the Stone, as well as some from more recent years.
In the museum, you can find works from all the major civilizations, including the Greeks, the Arabs, the Assyrians, the Greeks and the Turks.
Living Statue is also home to more than 600 other ancient works, from Persian, Byzantine, Greek, Roman and Ottoman period.
Living sculpture is a complex art form, where objects are designed to reflect a given mood or experience and then sculpted by hand.
The works are created using techniques that are not usually associated with the artistic arts, such as oil painting, clay sculpting and wood carving.
“Our aim is to show the diversity of life on earth, from one to the other,” says Sihanouk.
“There are so many different kinds of life and so many kinds of art.”

According to Sihon, more than 200 of the works are on display, as part of the museum’s Living Art Project.
“We have to protect the objects because they represent the human story and the human essence,” Sihin explains.
“It’s a very personal project, as each person creates their own life story.”
Among the paintings, Sihunk points out that some of the sculptures in the museum are from the 19th century and early 20th century.
He also points out some other sculptures from the world of art, such the work by a Turkish artist known as the “Madman,” as well the works by the artist Süleyman Aslan, whose sculptures are on the wall in the Living Statue gallery.
“The artwork is not about the person but about the environment,” says the museum director, Siyavin Karakol.
“People in the city can enjoy this art in their home.”
