Wood Wall Art Panel from Kilim Collection with Bird motif
People of Anatolia reflected their interactions with birds sometimes by embellishing their carpets with the motifs of dragon's head, sometimes by making double-headed birds on their holy sites and sometimes by putting a feather in their hairs. The beak of the bird, wing, and claw were stylized separately and became part of the daily life of the Anatolian people.
In Anatolian symbolism, the bird has many meanings. Even though sometimes it suggests love or lover, it can also be the soul of a dead person. The bird is identified as the woman. It is sacred. It is longing. It is an expectation of good news. It represents strength and power.
In addition, Eagle has been the symbol of many civilizations established in Anatolia. It is regarded as a sacred animal that represents the sky, foretell future events, and takes the souls to the otherworld.
The Bird motif is made up of 86 separate pieces of wood. There are seven different types of wood: Zebrano, Limba, Maple, Alder, Walnut, Afrormosia, Palisander. They are glued together on an MDF panel. The frame is made of Iroko.
There is no dye and stain involved. You see the natural colors of different types of wood. Wood has been finished with natural wax.
