Further Notes On Architectural Representation In Miniatures: The Case Of Hexagonal Buildings

1997
Üstünkök, Okan
In the latter half of this century, a wealth of classificatory, descriptive, and interpretative material has accumulated on Eastern miniature painting. There is still a certain degree of persistent overlook, however, in identifying the technical manner of representation of architectural objects found in a large number of these miniatures. The particular reference here is to depicting in miniature paintings a building, a part of a building, or a free-standing object like a tent, a canopy, a throne or sometimes even a simple utilitarian table either as background or appurtenance to a scene. Although it is widely acknowledged that Eastern miniature painters represented reality in a way that was different from what was developed by the Renaissance artists in the West, the exact nature of the difference hardly seems to have been explained technically. This essay attempts at reexamining the representational technique used by the 15th and 16th century miniature painters in the depiction of a simple rectangular building or object in frontal view in a way that it would appear to have a hexagonal top view or plan form.

Remarks On The Concept Of Pictorial Space In Islamic Painting
Orbay Grignon, İffet (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 1996-1-01)
The pictorial treatment of space in Islamic miniature painting is a subject that has largely remained undiscussed. Since naturalism is not a pictorial priority in these paintings, which are essentially two-dimensional, the representation of space appeared to many as an irrelevant problem. Historians of Islamic art accepted too readily the idea that the prohibition of images in Islamic culture crucially determined the two-dimensionality of pictorial representations. While this observation has a historical ba...
Improved methodology for identification of Goktepe white marble and the understanding of its use: A comparison with Carrara marble
Wielgosz-Rondolino, Dagmara; Antonelli, Fabrizio; Bojanowski, Maciej J.; Gladki, Marcin; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Lazzarini, Lorenzo (2020-01-01)
The provenance of marbles used for ancient statuary and architecture is of utmost importance for archaeologists, art historians and archaeometrists. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive characterisation of the white marble exploited in antiquity in Goktepe (Mugla Province, Turkey) to increase the reliability for identifying this marble in ancient artefacts. A campaign of interdisciplinary archaeological and geological fieldwork undertaken by the Marmora Asiatica project is based on a multi-me...
Engineering geological properties and durability assessment of the Cappadocian tuff
Topal, Tamer (1997-08-14)
Some of the unique landforms, the so-called ''fairy chimneys'', which were formed within the Cappadocian tuff of central Turkey, were used as dwellings in the past and contain culturally valuable wall paintings. However, these structures are undergoing chemical and physical deterioration due to atmospheric effects. For conservation studies, an understanding of the engineering geological properties of the tuff is essential. In this study, emphasis is placed on both material and mass properties of the tuff. T...
