This is a painting that came from an old fable. A story of Rokslana, a beautiful young girl who was abducted and taken away to a far off country. At night she would fly through her dreams back to her homeland and all her happy memories.
Sultan Suleyman "the magnificent" was not only a brilliant administrator and military leader, he was also a poet,
"Throne of my lonely niche, my wealth, my love, my moonlight.
My most sincere friend, my confidant, my very existence, my Sultan, my one and only love.
The most beautiful among the beautiful...
My springtime, my merry faced love, my daytime, my sweetheart, laughing leaf...
My plants, my sweet, my rose, the one only who does not distress me in this world...
My Istanbul, my Caraman, the earth of my Anatolia
My Badakhshan, my Baghdad and Khorasan
My woman of the beautiful hair, my love of the slanted brow, my love of eyes full of mischief...
I'll sing your praises always
I, lover of the tormented heart, Muhibbi of the eyes full of tears, I am happy."
