Large and very detailed picture of the Sultan Selim mosque in Edirne. Finely woven of hand spun wool. A rare and unusual example, perhaps inspired by a picture in an Islamic calendar. Signed and dated March 1, 1960. For Ali Yaltun as a commemoration. It should be noted that these large kilims were used as wall hangings in this region of Turkey.
