Bleib aufm Teppich with Calligraphy
In Anatolia, a carpet is regarded as a kind of letter carrier of the stories of a region. If injustice is addressed, a connection is established with field letters. The injustice of political/social problems or personal experiences on society and the individual is recorded and protected from being forgotten and published. This coding on colours forms the symbols woven by women into the mosaic of the message.
Bleib auf dem Teppich: Keeping on the carpet. (Meanings: colloquial: sticking to the facts, not exaggerating.)
