Kaplumbaga Terbiyecisi - Turtle Trainer by Great Ottoman painter Osman Hamdi

stone coaster.


The Tortoise Trainer

His 1906 painting, The Tortoise Trainer, broke a record in Turkey] by being sold for the amount of 3.5 million dollars in December 2004. The painting expresses a sarcastic innuendo on the painter's own view of his style of work compared to those of his collaborators and apprentices, and is also a reference to the historical fact of tortoises having been employed for illuminative and decorative purposes, by placing candles on the shell, in evening outings during the Tulip Era in the early 18th century. The painting was acquired by the Suna and Inan K?raç Foundation and is currently on display at the Pera Museum in Istanbul, which was established by this foundation.

Modern researchers have identified the animals portrayed are Testudo graeca ibera, a variety of the Spur-thighed Tortoise. A reproduction of the painting appeared on the cover of the Bibliotheca Herpetologica issue in which the paper about the identification was published.

Handycraft work.


Highly valuable for decoration and collectors.

It is great addition to any collection.
